We invite USU students to take part in the contest in the framework of the project “About complex things in simple words”
In November 2018, the flagship university of
the region was selected to participate in the project “About complex things in
simple words”. The Social Investment and Innovation Agency, which is the
developer of this large-scale federal project, announced the start of a contest
for the best student lecture on social entrepreneurship for schoolchildren.
The winners will be rewarded with a week practical
training course in Moscow in September 2019, during which they will be able to meet
with successful social entrepreneurs, to visit Moscow’s creative spaces for
socially significant projects, to take part in round tables and discussions
with federal experts and social innovation development institutes.
“Participation in the contest is a great opportunity for students not only to understand the subject of social entrepreneurship, but also to improve the skills of public presentations by telling schoolchildren about the “good” business. Records of speeches will be posted on the Internet, anyone will be able to see them. The winners will be determined including the “popular” voting, ”says Oksana Anistratenko, the head of the project “About complex things in simple words”.
To participate in the contest, you must submit an application for participation in the contest before January 31, 2019 following this link .
Currently, Ulyanovsk State University is involved in a large-scale work to promote social entrepreneurship among students and schoolchildren. “Students need to develop entrepreneurship, activity, and high adaptability to work in rapidly changing conditions. These skills are acquired in projects, usually of a social nature. It is in this connection that we support project activities aimed at developing all sectors of the economy and areas of activity ” said Natalya Ilyina, Vice-Rector for Innovative Development at USU.
