The main idea of the Youth Economic Forum is to set up a platform for discussing theoretical issues and practical aspects of regional development in the global economic space.
Since 2008, the Forum has attracted more than 3 000 young researchers, entrepreneurs and experts from 14 countries, 30 regions and over 50 cities and towns of Russia. In 2016, more than 1000 people took part in the Forum.
The Youth Economic Forum will include three platforms:
- Science (a conference for early-career scientists)
- Education (open lectures, business games, a congress for young entrepreneurs)
- Entrepreneurship (roundtable discussions, workshops)
