The participants were welcomed by Viktor Kolomiets, Project Director of the Yenisey Siberia Development Corporation. He said that HETS-2021 is a satellite event of the Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum.

“After the Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum in 2021, we saw a need for business events at which the initiatives outlined at the KEF would be further discussed. HETS-2021 is the first platform where we will be able to set key discussion topics, which will be continued at other KEF satellite events next year,” he said.

Ruslan Baryshev, Vice-Rector for Research, spoke about the high importance of the event for Siberian Federal University.

“Today we see the status of the participants. There are representatives of the university community, including representatives of leading universities from abroad, and the authorities. For Siberian Federal University, this is especially important in the context of creating here a world-class centre of science and education, which will deal with carbon and carbon–related topics, including the application of digital technologies,” claimed Ruslan Baryshev.

The tasks of the Yenisey Siberia Science and Education Centre in the context of the existing climate narrative and sustainable development were the subject of a plenary presentation by Sergey Verkhovets, Professor of SibFU and Head of the Centre.

In addition, representatives of leading foreign universities spoke at the plenary session and sections.
