According to him, the IT industry is given special importance today, the country's leadership has made an unprecedented decision to support it.
"The industry has grown by more than 36% in 2021. In the new conditions, it is important for us to accelerate, and in the near future a federal law will be adopted that will expand tax benefits and make them more accessible to IT and Internet companies. Decisions have been made to defer IT specialists from the army, IT companies are transferring lists for the Ministry of Defense until May 1st. Decisions were made on a multiple increase in grant support, on the development and improvement of Russian IT products, on preferential lending. Now the question is in the joint implementation of all solutions!" – said M. Parshin.
Andrey Omelchuk, Deputy Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, said that the state pays great attention to digital development.
"Digital strategy, digital transformation is the task of almost every university. There should be a lot of frames, the frames should be good. Since 2018, we have been increasing the volume of training specialists for the IT sector, the number of budget places continues to increase. This year we are launching a new project on mass training and retraining of students of non-IT specialties, so that specialists of different professions have a large set of digital competencies. Universities participating in the Priority 2030 program will enroll at least 80 thousand students in such vocational training programs. This is an important contribution to providing the industry with qualified personnel!" – said A. Omelchuk.
The program of the first day includes a plenary session of the Svyaz–2022 forum on the topic "Development of communication infrastructure as the basis of technological sovereignty of Russia", seminars and sessions on various areas of development of communication technologies and techniques, the work of the exhibition "Information and Communication Technologies".
Stand of SPbSUT No. 22B63 (Pavilion 2, Level 2, Hall 2) already started work.
