National Projects: What Will Be Done in the Far East?Education and Science
It is very important not to determine a child’s future now; it is impossible to say what they are going to be good at. The main task is for the person to learn how to build their own future

The Russian Youth Economic Agenda 2018–2024
If you expect that this issue (lack of education, Ed.) will be solved by colleges and universities… no, it will not for one single reason: while you are teaching them for 3–5 years, the technology grows into something fundamentally different

The Knowledge Economy and a New Paradigm for Developing Human Capital
The world craves for so-called human touch, for services, goods, things made by people and for people. In broad strokes, we need to get ready for the skills of human creativity: the ability to create and the talent to transfer human skills

orego standards setting. Time is valuable and you are wasting it on creating standards. Education standardization on average takes four years, whereas the same four years in the IT industry is a suicidal term. Just like intellectual property patents, standards in education must go. The only reason they are still here is because we have a conservative legislation that keeps them alive

New Urban Environments as a Catalyst for Investment
Unfortunately, in Russia our views on high-quality education is firmly rooted in educational certificates. It is very harmful to crudely separate high-quality from low-quality in this way. <...> We need to focus less on educational qualifications and more on competency.

Working professions have no future. We must understand that the concept of the profession disappeared quite a long time ago, and there is no need to speak of any logic – specifically of the profession – in this regard. <...> Essentially, workplace requirements vary greatly from company to company. The current situation is being shaped by skills

How Russia Can Harness Human Capital for Its Competitive Advantage
We always try to look at the so-called indicator of employment. Yes, it's wonderful that a person has a job, but we need to see where they work and why. <...> We take the upper crust of the nation and throw them into companies that are obviously won’t take them an-ywhere <…> it's a terrible indicator that should not be looked at
