The second round of the annual Youth Science and Technology Conference (USTC) was held at Transneft Kama Region on 26-28 November 2018. About a hundred specialists under 30 y.o. from Kazan, Izhevsk, Perm, Leninogorsk and Almetievsk, who had passed the qualifying stage, took part in the event.
Robert Galiev, Director General of Transneft Kama Region, noted in his welcome speech to the participants that the conference was an excellent stepping-stone for those who wanted to succeed in their job and in life in general, and a great opportunity for the Company to discover new young talents and to find solutions concerning vital production issues.
The contest implied that each participant had seven minutes to unfold the benefits of their innovation proposal or R&D solution and to substantiate its value for operational purposes.
A committee made up of key experts from Transneft Kama Region and the Director General of the Company, evaluated the presentations and granted awards to the best participants. The winners and prize-winners will participate in the next round – Transneft’s all-Russia youth contest of innovative solutions. Those who pass it will proceed to the finals – the international stage of the conference which is to take place in Bryansk in 2020.
After the prizes were handed out, a symbolic oil pipeliner initiation ceremony was held for those of the young specialists who participated in the conference for the first time.
Young specialists under 30 make 21% of Transneft Kama Region’s staff. The USTC is held by the Company annually to unlock the scientific and creative talent of young employees. The conferences traditionally consist of three rounds: at the branch office level, at Transneft Kama Region level and at Transneft level.
