In addition to the project presentations, the forum included the unusual format of meeting communication — breakfast with investors "Face to Face". The idea of this event is to organize informal communication between developers and business representatives. This is one of dialogue platforms where you can discuss the details of previously submitted projects, the terms of investments in business projects and to assess the perception of investors to the developments of young scientists.
Besides invited speakers from Russia, Belarus, France, and India held master classes for young scientists. The speakers tried to convey to the participants how to go from idea to its implementation and commercialization, how to apply creative approach to solving standard tasks, how to prepare investment projects.
With the participation of Belarusian young scientists, a number of projects in all three areas, including development in the field of new functional materials for protection of microelectronic equipment from ionizing radiation, the use of membrane techniques, studying nutritional value of specialized food products and others, was presented at the forum.
The final chord of the forum was a round table with participation of representatives of the Council of young scientists of Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Tajikistan, which adopted the unanimous decision to hold the 3rd Eurasian forum of young scientists in 2018 in Armenia.
