On June 5, representatives of the SUAI University took part in one of the sessions of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum dedicated to youth science.


On the final day of SPIEF, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation Valery Falkov answered questions from young scientists. Fellows and winners of Russian Presidential Prizes, grant recipients, as well as representatives of student scientific societies took part in the discussion on the topic “The Role of Youth Scientific Communities in the Implementation of the Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development of Russia”.


SUAI was represented at this event by Irina Anisimova, Director of the Center for the Development of Professional Competencies, and Vadim Nenashev, Head of the Laboratory for Intelligent Technologies and Complex Systems Modeling, who managed to ask Minister of Science and Higher Education Valery Falkov a question.


Vadim Nenashev asked about the Ministry's proposal to introduce the status of a young scientist and what opportunities it will open for people involved in science. Valery Falkov replied that due to the status of a young scientist, this category of people will have certain rights and a regulatory framework will be established to regulate their activities. For example, the age of young scientists will be determined, and they will also be able to receive various benefits (assistance in purchasing housing, additional vacations) and be under state protection.

In addition, the Business Diary magazine noted the development of Nenashev Vadim and his team:

"Scientists from the St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation have developed a multi-position airborne radio-optical complex for monitoring the earth's surface. It is used for environmental reconnaissance, as well as for predicting and preventing natural and man-made emergencies."
