On October 20-21, 2021 at the Russian State University named after A.N. Kosygin there was successfully held III International Kosygin Forum “Modern Tasks of Engineering Science” which was an important scientific event. The Forum has become the main platform for discussing key areas in engineering activities in Russia and abroad. Due to the pandemic restrictions, in 2021 the Forum was held in a blended format: offline and online (remotely). The number of offline and online participants amounted to 5,223 people. Leading Russian and foreign scientists, engineers, experts, entrepreneurs, representatives of the media took part in the Forum.
The Forum hosted 4 symposiums. In particular, there was traditionally held the International Scientific and Technical Symposium “Modern Scientific and Technical Problems in Key Industries” organized jointly by the International and Russian Academies of Engineering and Russian State University named after A.N. Kosygin.
In preparation for the Symposium, the International and Russian Academies of Engineering and Russian State University named after A.N. Kosygin carefully selected the articles for publication. 116 teams received the approval of the Scientific and Organizing Committees of the Symposium (about 300 authors in total). The teams presented the results of their research conducted in more than 20 countries, 40 Russian regions, in more than 50 universities and scientific institutes (Russian Academy of Science, Russian Authors Society, Russian Academy of Architecture and Construction Sciences and other national academies), as well as on the basis of key enterprises and organizations of many industries.
The collection of scientific works of ISTS “Modern Scientific and Technical Problems in Key Industries” was first published in three volumes (72 printed pages). An electronic version of the Collection can be found on the official websites of the Academies and University:
