Space-scale plans: Alexey Volin, General Director of RSCC, signed an agreement with the Governor of the Novgorod Region and the Rector of NovSU on the development of microelectronics and competencies in satellite communications

Alexey Volin, General Director of RSCC, signed an agreement with Andrey Nikitin, Governor of the Novgorod Region, and the Rector of Yaroslav-the-Wise Novgorod State University Yuri Borovikov on the development of competencies in the field of space telecommunications, the innovative potential of the region, as well as on the expansion of contacts and joint programs. The ceremony took place within the framework of the Demo Day of the ICC "Satellite Communications", organized by RSCC on April 4 in Veliky Novgorod.

"The Novgorod Region is a promising partner of RSCC in several areas. Firstly, it is the training of personnel by the university, which is building up the IT and digital potential of the industry. Secondly, we hope for the development of microelectronics and high technologies in the region, because Russian companies now have big plans to build spacecraft in all orbits. It is a case of hundreds of units," Alexey Volin said.

According to him, small production facilities in the Novgorod region for the manufacture of components can be integrated into the new satellite cooperation.

"We are faced with the task of global import substitution, we are now rebuilding many processes, so we are glad to see Veliky Novgorod as a participant in this cooperation," summed up General Director of RSCC.

"Space communications is not only communication, but also the management of a huge number of processes on earth, starting with unmanned technologies and ending with weather, agriculture and other areas. In this regard, it is obvious that satellite communications is the future, which is coming now. And the region, in turn, by building the necessary competencies, stimulating talented Novgorod scientists, moves this future forward," added Andrey Nikitin, Governor of the Novgorod Region.

"At NovSU, we will do everything possible to develop the necessary branches, primarily in ground-based electronics. Every year we accept about 600 people for the first course in electronic fields and specialties. Therefore, I think that we will be able to meet the demand for qualified personnel," Yuri Borovikov confirmed.
