At the invitation of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, scientists from the Timiryazev Academy and the "Agrotechnologies for the Future" scientific center took part in the VII Round Table "Russian-Chinese scientific and technical cooperation in the development and implementation of high technologies." The participants of the event discussed the prospects for the introduction of Russian-Chinese innovative developments.
The round table was held with the aim of demonstrating the high commercialization potential of Russian, Chinese, as well as joint Russian-Chinese innovative developments and projects. Within the framework of the event, the prospects for their implementation were discussed, as well as the issues of training qualified personnel for high-tech and promising industries by the universities of the two countries.
The participants of the round table were representatives of scientific and educational organizations of the two countries, implementing projects in priority areas for Russia and China. Among the promising areas are modern industrial and production technologies, new materials and technologies, biotechnologies and applied medical technologies.
From June 26 to July 9, 2022 RSAU-MAA named after K.A. Timiryazev and the Skoltech Innovation Center are preparing a rich program on modern plant breeding technologies. Participants will get acquainted with the most modern technologies used in plant breeding, take part in practical laboratory classes and master classes. The program of the School includes visits to leading breeding companies, research centers and laboratories.
In total, more than 90 applications from 27 regions of Russia were received for participation in the Summer School 2022. Students of agricultural universities of the CIS countries actively showed themselves in the competitive selection. Based on the evaluation results of the competition commission, the final list of school participants included 34 students of agronomic and biological specialties from 15 regions of Russia, as well as from Belarus and Kazakhstan.
The participation in the Summer School will be free of charge for participants: the organizers will pay for travel to the venue, accommodation and meals.
The Vavilov School of Young Scientists "Plant Genetic Resources: Preservation and Use in Breeding for the Food Security of the Russian Federation" was held at the branches of the All-Russian Institute of Plant Genetic Resources.
The concept of the Vavilov School program is focused on issues of breeding work on agricultural crops that are a priority for ensuring food security in Russia and import substitution - wheat, sunflower, sugar beet, soybeans and others.
This year, 27 young scientists from St. Petersburg, the Novosibirsk Region, Yakutia, Adygea, the Krasnodar Territory and Moscow became participants in the Vavilov School. Among them are master students of the Institute of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture of the RT SAU Yulia Degtyareva and Victoria Kulagina. Representatives of the Timiryazev Academy noted that the visit to the Kuban Genetic Seed Bank made it possible to get an idea of the approaches to modern gene banking, and participation in the School itself provided an opportunity not only to acquire new knowledge, but also to get acquainted with colleagues from all over Russia, to exchange experience with them.
As a result of participation in the program, Yu. Degtyarevа and V. Kulaginа received documents on advanced training.
