Ivan Fedotov: Summer campus is a career lift
An educational forum for talented youth – international Summer Campus of the Presidential Academy in the Republic of Tatarstan will take place for the sixth time from July 07 to July 20. The event is held in partnership with the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan, and the project is supported by the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia for the second year.
The Summer Campus is aimed at creating conditions for communication of talented young people from all over the world and promoting personal and professional growth of the new generation of leaders. Campus program includes workshops and interactive sessions with leading foreign and Russian experts, entrepreneurs, government officials and academics, as well as project work under supervision of experienced tutors.
This year 210 students have been selected from 3,500 applications, about 100 of whom are foreign students from 32 countries. Among them are the representatives of Switzerland, Canada, China, India, the Netherlands, Singapore, Turkey, Italy, Spain, Chile and many other countries. Subject of the Campus 2017 is "Entrepreneurship: From Idea to Success". The term "entrepreneurship" is understood differently. People tend to turn an idea into a profitable business. Success depends on the knowledge, skills and resources, but even more, it depends on the ability to perceive the surrounding world as infinite possibilities and see in any situation a chance to achieve the goal.
More than 20 experts will have the floor during the Summer Campus 2017. Among them is Senior Vice President of The Coca-Cola Company Clyde Tuggle, President of Mastercard Russia Alexey Malinovsky, Head of the Permanent Representative Office of the IMF Gabriel di Bella, Microsoft Chief Economist R. Preston McAfee, RANEPA Professor Sam Potolicchio, Independent Member of the Board of Directors of Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC Neil Osborne, Professor of International Economics at the University of Pompeu Fabra Josep Bertrand and others.
“First of all, we use advanced education technologies within the campus. The Campus does not mean just lectures and seminars; first and foremost, it means work with a mentor, who helps to correctly formulate questions to teachers, to the team members, and to yourself. Tutoring is not much developed in the Russian educational system, but it is exactly what really works. Within the framework of the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, we also implement several global projects in the field of education, where interdisciplinarity and entrepreneurship is the nucleus. We want our school and college students to have the opportunity to learn to react quickly to a dynamically changing world and be competitive on the global markets," marked the RANEPA Provost, Director of the Russian Association of Innovative Regions of Russia (AIRR) Ivan Fedotov.
Official opening ceremony of the Summer Campus can be seen online on July 09, 03.00 PM MSK.
The Campus will be held in Innopolis, next to Kazan. The organizers of the Summer Campus of the Presidential Academy are the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan, the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, with the support of the Group of Companies ACIG.
