The Yenisey Siberia contest unites the efforts of the scientific community, the government and business and directs them to the development of the region”, commented the Executive Director of the Regional Science Foundation Irina Panteleeva, “We have been holding it for several years and see how the number of industrial partners is growing, as a circle of long-term partners is being formed. On the one hand, this makes it possible to look with optimism at the attraction of the real sector of the economy to the financing of scientific research, and on the other hand, it allows scientists to solve problems that have access to production. “
The Yenisey Siberia Development Corporation was one of the industrial partners of the contest. On request of the company and the Yenisey Siberia CIP investors the basic scientific research will be conducted in the field of mechanical engineering, electronics and instrument engineering, environmental safety, rational nature management, sustainable development of the Yenisey Siberia regions in order to improve the quality of life of people.
Sergey Ladyzhenko, Director General of the Yenisey Siberia Development Corporation, notes that cooperation between science, the state and industrial partners ensures maximum effect for territorial development. “We are glad that the contest is being held for the second time. The intermediate results of the first one showed that the results of basic scientific research can be used to improve the efficiency of production and management processes. In addition, due to the formation of an order from industrial partners, we can financially support our research groups, providing them with resources to solve important problems, “said Sergey Ladyzhenko.
