UNN international students take part in Digital Innopolis Days
International students of Lobachevsky University became participants of the annual forum "Digital Innopolis Days - 2023" at Innopolis University. The forum was focused on the issues of digital independence in business and education. Forum venues brought together representatives of leading Russian and foreign universities, heads of major Russian industrial corporations and IT companies, experts from the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia. Speakers from the BRICS countries also made their presentations at the forum events.
As part of the two-day programme, participants discussed digitalization and artificial intelligence development, issues of technological sovereignty, as well as the development of technology and education exports, including within the BRICS framework. International students of Lobachevsky University Marcela Martins Dantas (Brazil), Dhananjay Singh (India), Zhao Dongyang (China) and Thulani Mtshweni (South Africa) took an active part in the forum events. Thus, within the framework of the youth discussion "Effective Learning Methods through the Eyes of Students", the students discussed the introduction of digital methods in the learning process, as well as the development of educational technologies. They also shared their opinions on the development of the startup movement in the BRICS countries.
"Participation in the Digital Innopolis Days - 2023 forum was a real discovery for me both in terms of science and my personal life! Not only did I learn "first-hand" about the key trends in the IT sector in Russia and the world, I discovered new topics that I will develop in my own research work. The forum organizers gave us a unique opportunity to share our experience and discuss our research findings with leading IT experts, receive recommendations and advice. Moreover, I had the opportunity to meet wonderful students who are interested in IT as much as I am. We will definitely keep in touch!", said Dhananjay Singh.
