SPIEF 2018 Discussion: How Comfortable Young Researchers Feel in Russian Academia?
Russia’s S&T complex is one of the largest in the world. But despite the impressive performance figures, the Russian R&D sector remains rather inertial. And according to various surveys, a career in science still doesn’t look very attractive to Russians. Tackling this problem was one of the objectives of the new 'May' Presidential decrees: when young people are keen on finding jobs in science, stay with their career choice, and make full use of their potential, a generally favourable overall atmosphere emerges in the sector. In the scope of the discussion, the experts pondered opportunities for improving science management tools to promote the inflow of new talent.
The discussion was hosted by the HSE ISSEK jointly with Coordination Council for Youth Affairs in the Sphere of Science and Education under the Presidential Council for Science and Education.
