The discussion table “Integration of youth in innovational process” officially opened the Youth Science Days in Republic of Bashkortostan. It has been held with the assistance of the Chairman of the Coordination Council on youth affairs in scientific and educational spheres under the Council for science, technologies and education under the President of Russia Eugene Petrov.

The problems of support of the youth scientific-research activity, realization of youth projects and the problems with housing for young specialists have become the main subject-matter.

As Eugene Petrov said, young specialists have to receive substantial state support.

“Young scientists are a perishable product but this product grows up from this condition very quickly so we have to work up a series of legal acts in order to have time for supporting young researchers” – he said.

Eugene Petrov has told about the last positive tendencies in sphere of state backing for young scientists.

“Not long ago we’ve solved the problem with the personal grants of the President RF for young scientists – earlier only the sportsmen and specialists of the military-industrial complex might figure on such grants” – he mentioned – “We intend to allocate at least 500 such scholarships to young researchers. The mechanism for housing building up by the youth housing co-operatives should become one more supporting measure. These houses will be erected on the lands of the scientific organizations and sold to the young scientists at prime cost. Thanks to this mechanism we will be able to solve the most urgent housing problems”.

Eugene Petrov has emphasized in his report that the councils of young scientists play important role in stimulation of the innovational processes.

“Such councils are established practically in all regions of the country for today” – he reported- “They help the researchers to orient themselves in the existing grants, scholarships and probation periods and in registration of their scientific works”.

At the same time several other arrangements, devoted to youth involving in scientific activity, will take place today. Thus, the VI annual Russian scientific conference for post-graduates and young scientists “Youth, Education, Science” will be held at the Eastern Economic-Juridical Humanitarian Academy.
