— I think it was the right and timely decision to make this conference an away one. If the venue of the event changes from year to year, the geography of scientific cooperation will expand, which is an important factor. All scientific reports have their own weight and place in the world scientific space, since this is included in the general piggy bank of world knowledge. The scientific knowledge possessed by the youth of Kazakhstan should be replenished as the ranks of young scientists. This leads to the popularization of the councils of young scientists of Kazakhstan, increases the impact of this conference. I’ll add from myself that I am very happy to take part, listen to my Kazakhstani colleagues, share invaluable experience with young scientists of Kazakhstan, which must be passed on to future generations. I liked the exhibition of projects where you could visually familiarize yourself with the works brought to a specific result, a trademark, products, — shared his opinion Ruslan Askarbekov, the head of the department of science of the Kyrgyz State Technical University named after I.
