The Global Energy Association and the Sirius University develop joint initiatives
Within the framework of the summit of young scientists and engineers 'Big Challenges for Society, State and Science', which is now taking place in Sochi on the basis of the Sirius Scientific and Technological University, a meeting was held between representatives of the Global Energy Association and the University. Parties discussed the possibility of creating joint educational programs for young people.
The meeting was attended by Pavel Korolev, Vice President for Development and Projects of the Global Energy Association, and acting Rector of the Scientific and Technological University 'Sirius' Artemy Rozhkov. During the conversation, representatives of organizations expressed mutual interest in organizing common events, in particular, projects for young scientists.
«The Global Energy Association has been organizing competitions for young energy professionals for 16 years. Based on our rich experience in conducting youth projects in Russia, since 2019, we decided to support young power engineers from around the world by establishing the International Youth Program. The main goals of the program are to stimulate the scientific activities of beginning specialists in the field of energy and the development of dialogue and exchange of experience between young specialists. We see great potential in developing cooperation with the University and are confident that our experience can be successfully implemented in such a modern educational center as Sirius, where Russian schoolchildren and students are given a unique opportunity to develop their talents in advanced laboratories under the guidance of leading scientists,” said Pavel Korolev.
As a result of the meeting, the parties decided to develop a joint document that will outline the main areas of cooperation: expanding the joint expert base, organizing a unified communication space for young scientists and leading experts in the energy industry, and creating a common multifunctional information platform.
The Sirius Scientific and Technological University was opened by the Foundation 'Talent and Success' on the basis of the Olympic infrastructure in the building of the Sirius Educational Center in Sochi. On October 28th, the annual summit of young scientists and engineers 'Big Challenges for Society, State and Science', organized by the Foundation in partnership with the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation and the Presidential Council on Science and Education, started at the science center. It has gathered 600 participants. Almost half of them are students from 76 universities from 32 regions of Russian Federation.
