As part of the platforms discussion block, young professionals will make short presentations of their projects to world-famous experts, the heads of research and technology centres of industrial enterprises, and venture and industry-specific investors.
During the discussions, youth platform participants will talk about their ideas and projects in sectors driving the growth of the world economy and the industrial revolution.

The most attractive youth projects will have a chance to qualify for participation in the Business Priority Pitch Session, which will include presentations from innovative start-ups to Russian and Arab investment funds, state corporations, and major industrial companies.
Moreover, young professionals will receive a chance to participate in the Summits main programme and attain the ultimate prize: the right to join the delegation of Russian entrepreneurs at the third Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit.
