Regional support centres for gifted children and young people: collaboration between business, the scientific community, and the government in developing science and technology in Russia

A network of centres to identify and support gifted children is to be developed throughout Russia, building on the experience of the Talent and Success Foundation and incorporating the assistance of leading educational establishments. The aim is to provide a national system of support for these young people in order to implement Russia’s scientific and technological development strategy and achieve the country’s main socioeconomic development objectives. The regional centres are being developed in accordance with Presidential Instruction No. PR-2346, clause 4b, and the Scientific and Technological Development Strategy of the Russian Federation (approved by Presidential Decree No. 642, dated December 1, 2016). The aim is to establish 85 centres in the period between 2017 and 2022. Leading Russian companies, scientific groups, and innovative regions must agree a model for working with gifted children which meets the challenges of identifying and developing the talent of as many children as possible throughout the Russian Federation. The session will provide an opportunity to agree the overall strategy and principles for identifying resources to enable the most effective implementation of these objectives: the development of gifted young people and their inclusion in the Russian employment market within the high-tech science and technology sector.
