Science Tourism: An Impetus for Solving Current Problems of Society and Science

18 Jun , 12:00–13:15
International Youth Economic Forum
Pavilion H, conference hall H22 (2nd floor)

The Decade of Science and Technology brought forth an initiative that aims to attract young people to the field and help resolve various regional social issues: it is called ‘science tourism’. What does it actually mean? What is the development plan for this initiative? How will the dialogue between science, business, government, and society be built in the field of science tourism? How are routes, interactive maps, guidebooks, and other elements coming along? Are there plans to set aside special areas for science tourism? How can one become a ‘science guide’ and a ‘science tourist’? The traditional cooperation of young scientists in Eurasia is driven by geographical, historic, economic, political, and cultural factors. How does interaction develop today within various associations, such as the Union State, the CIS, and EAEU? Which joint projects, programmes and contests are happening? How is the international exchange going?
