The Head of the Department of science and education mentioned that first it will mean a serious expansion of work. In addition, it is a quite logical continuation of the work, which the department conducted in the past with the Moscow higher education institutions and with institutes of the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations at the request of the Mayor. A certain interaction with them was held earlier as all pre-professional classes have been created in the commonwealth with higher education institutions, with academic institutes. The work in this direction will be continued and extended.
The other task Kalina mentioned was the use of scientific capacity of higher education institutions, Academy of Sciences and scientific centers located in Moscow for the development first of all of the Moscow education to integrate scientific research for the benefit of the city; it was the reason why it has been transferred to the Department of Education.
And, there is one more not less serious problem – filling the gaps in the scientific staff of the capital by young professionals.
It is no secret that there was a certain period in the 90s – 00s years when the youth practically did not go in for science for many reasons: payment, absence of laboratories. Today, thank God, both in higher education institutions, and in scientific centers in Moscow a very serious laboratory base is presented, work of scientists is well paid. Our task is also to help Moscow school students, who are capable in this field, with their choice and scientific career. All this can be done only in the closest communication with the scientific organizations. We hold meetings with the leading academicians and we look for mutually useful action, – Isaak Kalina said.
