New Dimension Forum

On 22-24 November 2017, Obninsk Institute for Nuclear Power Engineering is hosting the New Dimension Forum - a pan-Russian youth event on innovation. Its goal is to aggregate the latest knowledge in various fields and leverage it to solve practical tasks.

The New Dimension is running in four streams: IT, Leadership, Design, Technology. An alternative stream is a 2-day Hackathon - a round-the-clock workshop where teams choose a project in the field of IT or information-systems-related fields and develop it within the next 30 hours. The projects are further assessed by investors, university and city officials, and representatives of the participating companies.

This year’s agenda of the IT stream features cybernetics, applied mathematics, and programming. Iosif Itkin, Exactpro Сo-founder and CEO, will speak on Defect Mining and The Economy of the Future.

The forum's goal is also to encourage youth networking in the region and facilitate job placement for university graduates. Therefore the forum’s program includes a StartUp Slam, an urban projects Generator, and a job fair with an exhibition area.

The inaugural New Dimension forum is expected to bring together about 300 participants and 30 partner companies.
