According to Yemelyanov, Russian culture is a uniquely established global brand, which is one of its natural strengths. Nevertheless, there are a number of problems that need to be resolved in the near future: often substandard or dilapidated facilities and equipment and a low level of training of specialists.
The speaker also gave the students some practical advice on how to achieve success of their project, citing personal examples. According to Yemelyanov, identifying the target audience is an important step when creating a new product.
