RUSNANO: technical colleges and universities need entrepreneurship syllabuses

RUSNANO: technical colleges and universities need entrepreneurship syllabusesRussian technical universities need a technological entrepreneurship educational program, Yuri Udaltsov, the director of RUSNANO innovative development says. In his view, it will improve human resource development to work with innovative projects.

This view was expressed by Udaltsov, speaking on Tuesday at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology conference on innovation in pharmaceuticals and medicine. In addition, he also noted that Russia has a serious lack of tools for personnel training to work in a variety of high-tech industries.

Since last autumn, several departments for such specialists training opened in MIPT. In particular, RUSNANO and RVC, OJSC opened their own departments there.

I am deeply convinced that ... we need to think about special program of technological entrepreneurship creation, which should be required in technical universities starting with undergraduates - Udaltsov said.
