On Tuesday, December 1, in the framework of the Russian-German Raw Materials Forum, an online conference dedicated to the prospects of hydrogen energy was held. It was attended by Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak, Minister of Economy and Energy of Germany Peter Altmaier, Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, Chairman of the Bundesrat (a legislative body consisting of representatives of German states) Rainer Hezeloff, Forum co-chairmen Vladimir Litvinenko and Klaus Tepfer, Bundestag deputy Stefan Kaufmann, Russian Deputy Energy Minister Pavel Sorokin, Aide to the head of the Presidential Administration Kirill Molodtsov, other prominent politicians and scientists, as well as heads of major fuel and energy companies of the two countries. The discussion was attended by more than seven hundred people from Germany and thousands from Russia and other countries.
At first glance, building a career in the Far North is a bold, if not daring decision. However, it is there that the largest oil fields in Russia are located, so, combined with harsh winters and remoteness from megacities, local specialists have an opportunity to achieve rapid success in their efforts. A St. Petersburg university graduate told how to become a leading specialist in the Production Optimization Sector of RNYuganskneftegaz just within a few years.
The total number of universities in the association has reached twenty-five. Among them are the most authoritative technical and economic institutions of higher education in Russia, whose areas of study are related to training personnel for the mineral and raw materials complex of the country.
