Work of the young professionals at the sections was with the direct participation of moderators from the professorial — teaching staff of YURGPU.
Sergey Novikov, Chief Specialist of Technical Development Department:
— Currently, there are not many major sites where young professionals of the electricity industry could communicate and share ideas. That is why the conference, held on the site of YURGPU, attracted the attention of IDGC of Centre. It is worth noting the high organizational level of the event, a variety of topics for reports, activity with which participants defended their own opinions. Certainly, it is necessary to support such formats of communication and exchange of ideas among innovation -minded young people, develop the skills to work together to address the problem tasks identified within the sections.
Ilya Gusev, Leading Engineer of Kostromaenergo:
— I consider the participation of IDGC of Centre’ employees in such events obligatory, as they support the link between the science and practice. And the result of this interaction can be really useful and relevant technical solutions for the grid complex.
