The expansion of the international scientific dialogue is one of the priorities of the Science Council at the Foundation of the First President. Council members regularly deliver lectures, workshops and training abroad. In turn, at the initiative of the Council, young scientists and experts from around the world, visiting Kazakhstan, share their knowledge and skills.
From May 16 to 18, 2019, members of the Science Council at the Foundation returned from the Republic of Armenia, where they took an active part in the work of the V International Youth Scientific School «Innovation Management». Among the objectives of this school is to attract the attention of young people to innovation and to develop the skills of generating business ideas for the younger generation.
Young scientists, students, graduate students, researchers and start-up entrepreneurs of Armenia and foreign countries took part in the school. Welcoming them, the Deputy Chairman of the Science Council at the Foundation of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan – Elbasy Sukhrab Zhaparov stressed: «Through this platform, scientists and entrepreneurs can build an effective dialogue that will become the basis of strong cooperation for the implementation of business ideas and the commercialization of research projects. Investors for the implementation of scientific ideas in life can be found not only in their own country. Establishing business contacts as part of such activities contributes to the implementation of intercountry projects».
But how to attract an investor, effectively hold a presentation in front of him and generally monetize his research project, a member of the School’s Science Council at the Foundation, business coach Gani Abadan told the school’s participants. His master class «Monetization of scientific ideas» has deservedly become one of the brightest in a rich program of the event.
