The nationwide project Profession of My Future will enable mid- and high-schoolers (ages 12-18) to undergo aptitude testing for “professions of the future,” participate in the Jobland contest, and visit Moscow technology parks. The program is built around five key areas (IT; Biotech; Aerospace; Robotics and Machine Engineering; Education and Culture) that are likely to see an influx of new professions in the near future.
Technopolis Moscow and Strogino Technology Park will be the first sites to welcome participants of the program. Students will have an opportunity to get to know the inner life of these technology parks and get some insights from representatives of resident companies. Being innovation development centers, technology parks have a high concentration of advanced and forward-looking companies. Those who work there know well what professions are indeed the “professions of the future.” Thus, young participants of Profession of My Future have an excellent chance to learn about the latest trends in innovation-driven industries from those directly involved with them, and to find out what specialists will be needed by such companies in the future.
Students will be able to address their questions to representatives of Texel, M-Industries, NexTouch, REABOX, OKB-Vector, LEONARDA-SERVIS, 101ХP, 3D Prototyping and Radio Engineering Center, and others.
The federal career advising project Profession of My Future specifies 5 innovation-driven areas: IT; Biotech; Aerospace; Robotics and Machine Engineering; Education and Culture. Each of them is presented in seven various formats, the segments of the project. The majority of these segments are accessible through the website of the project. To make it more appealing to the target audience, the site features design elements reminiscent of computer games. It has graphic characters, the representatives of various professions of the future Russia.
The project is supported by the Science and Education Development Committee under the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, the Independent Association of Philologists, and the United Independent Association of Pedagogues. The goal of the project is to help its participants gain an understanding of trends in Russia's innovation-driven industries and learn about specific professions that will be demanded by these industries in the near future.
Participation in the project is free of charge.
The project is financed with government support funds allocated as a grant in accordance with the decree of the President of the Russian Federation of 05.04.2016 No. 68 and on the basis of a competition run by the Russian Union of Rectors.
