In the period from 25 to 26 November, a strategic session was held in Khabarovsk, dedicated to the development of science and higher education in the Far East. The event attracted the attention of many high-ranking participants, including the Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic Alexei Chekunkov, governors of the Khabarovsk Territory Mikhail Degtyarev and Kamchatka Territory Viktor Solodov and other high-ranking officials. Many representatives of the authorities and rectors of universities in the Far East, including the rector of Dalrybvtuz Oleg Scheka, also took part in the strategic session.
The Minister of Science and Education of the country Valeriy Falkov addressed the participants of the forum. The main attention of the agenda was directed to the development of state measures in order to solve the unfavorable demographic situation associated with the outflow of the population, mainly young people, from the territories of the Far East.
The participants of the event expressed concern about the tendency that has developed in the territory of the macroregion towards a decrease in the demand for educational programs of higher education among young people. As a result of the event, a number of proposals were developed aimed at preserving the human capital of the Far East and attracting additional youth resources for training and work from other regions of the country.
The participants of the strategic session also discussed the prospects for higher education in the Far Eastern macro-region in general in the context of the program of state support for universities "Priority-2030".
The session was held in a dialogue format and allowed representatives of the universities of the Far East to identify problem areas of development, and the heads of leading Russian universities to share their experience in the implementation and implementation of large educational projects.
According to Valery Falkov, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation has decided to make such meetings regular and hold them in different regions of the Far Eastern Federal District.
