The Year of Science and Technology Russia hosted in 2021 showed the demand for science from both the professional communities and the society at large. Many initiatives were supported by the President and the government, while new tools for professional development of the young are being launched. Those include the advanced research infrastructure at universities and research centres, educational programmes, corporate and public projects, various contests and grants. What is the current trajectory of young professionals' development and what competences are particularly in demand? How to support scientific projects and community development in the regions? How do Student Scientific Community and Young Scientists’ Council support the involvement of young people in science? What are the most successful cases implemented in universities today?
