Rosneft was the general partner of the youth section of the XXIV St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF Junior), which is being held for the first time as part of the SPIEF.

Rosneft forms its talent pool according to the school-university-enterprise system, acting as a responsible partner of the state education system. In the regions of operations, the Company opens Rosneft-classes with in-depth study of natural science subjects. Within the framework of additional education, joint research projects are being implemented with Innopraktika, the Moscow State University preparatory school, and Sirius Educational Center.
