Over 5 thousand people pretend to participate in the Educational Intensive Course of the University “20.35” of the National Technology Initiative (NTI) “Ostrov 10-22” that will take place in July at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech). This was reported by the Press Service of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the RF.
The participants can see their results in personal accounts. As it was explained by the Ministry, these results will be the basis for recommendations for Presidents of the institutes concerning inclusion of candidates in the final teams. If a candidate is not included into the team by the decision of the President of the institute, he/she can participate in “Ostrov” as an individual participant.
The first Educational Intensive Course “Ostrov 10-21” was held in summer 2018 in Russky Island in Vladivostok. Brand new approaches and practices of intensive training have been worked out here for the first time with the use of artificial intelligence technologies, gathering of digital footprint, formation of individual educational trajectories.
The main task of the second intensive course at Skolotech will be the development of managerial teams of the regional higher educational institutions that can implement system changes to ensure a technology breakthrough. For the institutes, participating in “Ostrov” will become a start of interaction with the NTI, a program for creating conditions to bring the Russian breakthrough technologies to the international markets. The NTI objectives and opportunities are integrated in the National Project “Nauka”. In particular, according to the National Project data sheet, 14 NTI competence centers must be created by 2020.
The National Project “Nauka” has been developed in accordance with Order of the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, issued in May. The deadline of its implementation is by 2024, inclusive.
According to the goals of the National Project, in 2024, Russia should be in top five leading countries of the world in scientific research and developments in the fields determined by scientific and technological priorities. The attractive working conditions for the Russian and foreign leading scientists, as well as for young prospective researchers should be created in the RF, the internal costs for scientific research and development should be increased. In particular, the National Project provides for upgrading of more than 50% of the instruments and facilities of the leading organizations engaged in scientific research and development.
