Russian scientists assessed the prospects for introducing hydrogen technologies
In the middle of last year, the European Commission published the “Hydrogen Strategy for a Climate Neutral Europe.” According to Brussels, it is the first number of the Mendeleyev table, together with renewable energy sources, that should allow the Old World to reduce to zero the carbon footprint and, as a consequence, minimize environmental pollution. Already by 2030, the generating capacity of electrolyzers built within the borders of the EU should be at least 40 gigawatts (less than 4% of the total installed capacity in 2018). The same amount is planned to be imported, including from our country.

The builder of Nord Stream 2 named the main problem of the 21st century
Sergei Serdyukov, the former technical director of Nord Stream 2, believes that the main obstacle to Russia’s progressive development is the lack of quality managers, those who can take responsibility for making important strategic decisions and avoid making mistakes when putting them into practice. Is this really the case? How can we make serious top managers of promising young people with leadership skills? Forpost publishes excerpts from Sergey Serdyukov's commencement lecture “Management as the main problem of the 21st century”, which he delivered in St. Petersburg, at the "Young Leaders of Science-2020” forum.

Experts identified the requirements of the labor market for a modern engineer
According to surveys, only 15% of Russians are ready to obtain additional competencies after graduation. The rest believe that knowledge and skills should be replenished only in case of emergency, for example, when applying for a new job or promotion. At the same time, the pace of technological progress today is so high that, according to most analysts, only those who study throughout their lives can count on a successful career. And they would do that absolutely consciously, on a voluntary basis, and not “under constraint."
