The educational programme started in July 2022. Based on the results of participation in Gazprom’s corporate youth programmes, 33 trainees were selected for the Young Scientist 4.0. During the first stage, they participated in master classes on development of self-presentation skills and attended a course of lectures of Russian and international experts in energy and global scientific cooperation. At the next stage, the specialists showed video presentations of their own research projects. The best of them were chosen by the working group members.
The winners are:
- Mars Zakiryanov, Head of the Service for Managing the Technical Condition and Integrity of the Gas Transmission System (GTS) of Gazprom Transgaz Ufa;
- Stanislav Kalyuzhny, Lead Engineer, Central Chemical Analytical Laboratory, Gazprom Transgaz Krasnodar;
- Nikita Konkov, Deputy Director of the Engineering and Technology Centre (ETC) of Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk.
“The Young Scientist 4.0 programme helps researchers in acquiring the skills to disseminate their ideas and developments more widely, both in the academic community and in the practical energy environment. In the future, it will be useful for their career, increase recognition and citation, which will help them qualify for prestigious awards,” said Sergey Brilev, the President of the Global Energy Association.
Each of the three winners will be assigned a mentor from among the industry leading experts. They will also be able to publish a joint chapter in the Global Energy Association’s next annual report, 10 Breakthrough Ideas in Energy for the Next 10 Years.
The award ceremony is to take place on the eve of the Power Engineers’ Day, in St. Petersburg, December 2022.
