The main outcome of the conference was an understanding to sign an agreement with the International Institute of Project Management and Innovation Studies to open a Technical training center at the Respirator Research and Development Enterprise. The International Institute of Project Management and Innovation Studies (MIUPI) will establish a Technical training center at the Respirator Research and Development Enterprise. This was announced by the Institute's representative at the "Innovative Human Resources Policy in the High-Tech Production – Education – Science System" Conference.

"The University has developed a module program for continuous training of specialists," said the principal of MIUPI Vladimir Kuznetsov. "Under the agreement, a base department for training different level specialists will be established at the Respirator Research and Development Enterprise to concentrate efforts of o schools, universities, and the enterprise."

"The personnel optimization process has demonstrated that the introduction of promising competitive developments increases requirements for staff recruitment, therefore approaches to training specialists should also change," said Alexander Bryzgalin, CEO of Respirator. "It is important that these requirements are heard by representatives of educational institutions and students. We want to get not just talented process-engineers but specialists who are able to analyze and understand the life cycle of the produced items." In his opinion, such training is only possible if the students enter an internship at a real production plant.

The conference was also attended by representatives from industrial enterprises, administrative authorities, educational institutions, and an employment center. Professional training of students at real production plants was a key issue of the conference agenda. As a follow-up to the conference, a resolution was prepared on establishing an integrated system of personnel and career guidance in the "school – university – production" policy. This policy suggests different forms of interaction between enterprises and educational institutions: targeted education, master classes, the inclusion of enterprise representatives on a board to form a list of budget-funded education programs.

"We have been cooperating with Technodinamika for several years under an agreement on training process-engineers," said Alexander Kolesnikov, the head of Scientific and Educational Complex Machine Building Technologies at Bauman Moscow State Technical University. "Students undertake internship at a scientific and production enterprise and choose topics for course work and graduate theses in accordance with the production tasks. It is much easier for these students to choose a place of work, and therefore, to apply the knowledge obtained in university, and they face the prospect of scientific work."
