The delegation of Yugra headed by the governor of the region takes part in the international industrial exhibition "Innoprom" held in Yekaterinburg from July 4 to 7. The main theme of the event is "Industrial Transition: from challenges to new opportunities".
The Republic of Kazakhstan became a partner country this year. The exhibition will present current domestic and joint developments in the field of production automation, new mobility, modern materials and other promising areas. In addition to the exhibition program, a rich business program is being implemented at the exhibition, which includes topical discussions, round tables, conferences and educational modules.
Yugra State University joined the delegation of the Autonomous Okrug. Representatives of the university, headed by Rector Roman Kuchin, plan to take part in the business program of the forum, attend a session on training qualified personnel for the labor market of the Autonomous Okrug, held by Gazprom Transgaz Yugorsk LLC together with the Yugra Development Fund. In addition, within the framework of the exhibition, the Governor of Yugra Natalia Komarova met with students of universities in the region.
In her welcoming speech, Natalia Vladimirovna noted that modern challenges associated with sanctions restrictions carry import substitution opportunities: "It was a good idea to include students in the delegation of the region. This is a great opportunity for you not only to look at others, but also to get feedback on your research. Our task is to respond promptly to changes in global trends, interact effectively and find joint solutions to create a sustainable development model."
For Vsevolod Tkachenko, a post-graduate student of the major "Energy" of the Higher School of Engineering of YuSU, participation in such an event is the first experience.
"It was very unexpected and pleasant to talk in an informal setting with Natalia Vladimirovna! As for the exhibition, everything is very interesting! We plan to see in which directions the enterprises are moving, to gain new experience and find potential partners for collaborations," the young scientist said.
Vsevolod's project is aimed at building an electricity supply system in decentralized areas of the Autonomous Okrug, which allows to increase the reliability of the power grid, as well as reduce the cost of electricity.
The head of the region noted the similarity of this project with the IT-camps project, which is already being successfully implemented on the territory of the Autonomous okrug: "When it comes to mastering or creating comfortable conditions for people in a new place, you need to go with a comprehensive solution, getting maximum effect from technology. In this case, by equipping camps that are located far from developed infrastructure systems with high-speed Internet, we create conditions for obtaining energy, simultaneously solving several issues at once. This is a very important approach, especially if we are talking about remote territories."
"Students shared their researches' results. Some have already had implemented their developments. For Instance there is a diesel generator operating in the village of Karym today, which is controlled using software developed by students. This is very pleasant thing to say," Roman Kuchin said.
During the meeting, the students had an opportunity to ask Natalia Vladimirovna their questions. In addition, today there will be a panel discussion on the training of qualified personnel for the labor market of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Yugra, where young scientists will be able to present their research projects for discussion and possible support.
"Today Russia is once again on the verge of change, and the Innoprom -2022 exhibition is more relevant than ever! I believe that the challenges we all face should be used for the benefit of the state. New opportunities are opening up before our country and they give us an additional incentive for development and transformation. Now it is important to seek, discuss and create advanced scientific projects for the technological development of industry, as well as to build new trade and economic relations with friendly states. I hope that the exhibition will be interesting for everyone present, and perhaps some of you will have new ideas and useful acquaintances," commented the rector of YuSU.
