Regional Forum of the Council of Young Scientists opens in EXPOFORUM
The Forum began with a plenary session in the format of a panel discussion on the topic “Main trends in the development of young scientists’ potential in the agro-industrial complex”.
Miroslava Skrynnikova, Deputy Director of the Department of Scientific and Technological Policy and Education of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia, addressed the participants with a welcoming speech.
“On behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, I would like to welcome the participants of the Forum, who are not even the future, but already the present of our science. The pit of the 1990s, when many people stopped engaging in scientific activities, hinders the development of the agro-industrial complex. We now critically need breakthrough technologies, a new way of looking at things. Therefore, we welcome the emergence of young scientists in the agrarian sphere, who will not be afraid to voice the boldest views. The Ministry gladly supports the work with young professionals. The doors of our universities and research institutes are always open for them,” Skrynnikova said.
Alexander Gorokhov, Deputy General Director for Commerce of ExpoForum International, also noted the importance of involving young specialists in scientific activities in the agro-industrial complex.
“We are delighted to see young and ambitious people of science at EXPOFORUM. The people who are present here today are those whose work largely determines the preservation of our country’s status as the leading agrarian power. Without science, both fundamental and applied, without the introduction of innovative methods, developments, systemic research, there can be no development or growth of the agro-industrial complex. The Agrorus exhibition is a vivid example of how scientific achievements are applied in practice and move the domestic agriculture forward. Science, education, human potential are the annual topics of Agrorus congress program. It is very important to involve the younger generation in the discussion, as they will build the future. I wish you to succeed in your work and come back to us with new achievements and victories,” Gorokhov said.
The regional forum of the Council of Young Scientists “The potential of young scientists as a driver of agro-industrial complex development” is held within the framework of the 32nd International Agro-Industrial Exhibition Agrorus-2023. It is organized by St. Petersburg State Agrarian University and ANO SoBytie with the support of the Committee on Youth Policy and Cooperation with Public Organizations.
