The point is the "Points"

Another subdivision of the federal network for youth development started working in Yakutia

Recently in Yakutsk the second "Boiling Point" opened its doors. She appeared at Northeastern Federal University. The collaborative space allows you to attend events with experts from a variety of relevant industries and host your own events. Students can use the coworking zone at any time, read books there, watch a photo exhibition - the first has already opened: works by a young author Nina Sleptsova about the Arctic are presented. All of this is free, which is certainly of great value to students.

The network of such spaces was initiated in the country by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives. The first "Boiling Point" has been operating in Yakutia since 2018 in the building of an IT park in the very center of the city. For two years of work, almost 19 thousand people visited it, 663 events were held there.

As the head of the city “Boiling Point” Ivan Stepanov emphasizes, there is no big difference between the two sites in Yakutia, but the university “Tochka” opens up more opportunities specifically for students and researchers. For example, the project of the history faculty of NEFU "Colloquium Terra Incognita", which will unite scientific circles of humanitarian directions, plans to be based there. Students will be able to do their "own" business there and do joint projects, get acquainted with colleagues, learn more about other humanities.

The UTK pays great attention to the topic of the Arctic. It is not for nothing that the first exhibition is dedicated to this very thing. As part of the opening, a large plenary meeting on the development of the Arctic territories was held in space, in which the head of the region, Aisen Nikolaev, took part. The key topic of the NEFU development program, which is synchronized with the national program for the development of the Far East, is the sustainable development of the North.

“NEFU is the holder of unique competencies at the point where changes are most dramatic. We need you to explain this agenda to the whole country, so that everyone empathizes with what is happening in the Far East and the North. An important role of the university is to become a neutral platform that raises topical issues and does it correctly, ”said Dmitry Peskov, special representative of the President of Russia for digital and technological development, at the opening of the platform.

Anatoly Semenov, Minister of Innovation, Digital Development and Infocommunication Technologies of Yakutia, shared his opinion that the transformation of the university begins with the opening of the "Boiling Point-NEFU".

“The main transformation is to become open to society, business, large corporations, other universities and regions, it is simple and difficult at the same time,” the minister said.

And about. Petr Gabyshev, director of the Yakutia Technopark, is confident that the opening of the "Boiling Point" at the university will create the best conditions for interaction and cooperation of students with entrepreneurs, scientists and activists from various fields, to involve them in the field of innovation, business, social entrepreneurship.

"Boiling Point" of NEFU will work in close partnership with "Boiling Point - Yakutsk", which exists in IT Park, a structural division of the Technopark. I am sure that the constant exchange of information, projects and developments will accelerate the dynamics of the development of both spaces. For our part, we expect that with the opening of the "Boiling Point" of the university, students will be able to become more actively involved in the innovative environment of the region, become participants in the process of its formation and further development, "commented Petr Gabyshev.
