PETERHOF HALL, October 15 12:30 — 13:45
The task of changing the technological order and innovative development of the economy is closely linked with the training of personnel who comply with modern business needs and are competitive in the global market. The point is not only in obtaining new knowledge, but also in developing project competencies and ensuring readiness for professional work in uncertain conditions which, in turn, demands restructuration of education. The training scheme to prepare “cutting-edge” personnel should undergo structural, substantive, and regulatory transformation, allowing universities to become Alma maters of innovation and not just a source of manpower.
