Vasily Shpak visited Photonics. World of Lasers and Optics 2023 at EXPOCENTRE
Photonics. World of Lasers and Optics 2023 is currently running at EXPOCENTRE Fairgrounds. A meeting of industry representatives of HR issues was held within the show’s conference programme.
The meeting was attended by Russian Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Vasily Shpak, representative of the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education Mikhail Petrov, representatives of the Rostec State Corporation, Shvabe and other industry enterprises.
In recent years, during the industry’s dynamic development and unprecedented support measures for manufacturers and developers of high-tech products, many companies have experienced staff shortages, which have been exacerbated by the growing demand for electronics products. Employees involved in cutting-edge projects to design, promote and develop electronic products are in demand all over the world.
“The 20th century was the century of the electron, and the 21st century will be the century of the photon, so the issue of staffing in this segment of the radioelectronics industry is particularly relevant. Industry representatives need to consolidate to draft a roadmap for improving educational programmes, infrastructure and the development of human resources in the field of advanced technologies. All the necessary resources for this are available,” said Vasily Shpak, Russian Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade.
Additionally, the deputy minister talked about the importance of industry associations in solving urgent systemic problems, and the meeting participants supported the initiative to sign a cooperation agreement with the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade to establish effective and mutually beneficial cooperation in the field of advanced photonics, radio photonics and electronics of new materials.
