On February 7, leading road construction specialists gave a course of lectures on road construction for students in specialized areas of training at the Polytechnic University. The meeting took place within the framework of the 5th anniversary conference “Asphalt Concrete 2024”. Its organizers are the R.O.S.Asphalt Association and ASTECH Industries LLC with the support of the Federal Road Agency, Avtodor Group of Companies, ANO NII TSK and TK 418 Road Facilities.

A course of lectures on road construction is one of the tools for increasing the coordination of actions of participants in the innovation cycle (government, business, education) in training specialists in the field of design, construction, operation, reconstruction, repair and maintenance of highways, creating a comfortable urban environment.

Leading experts – industry practitioners, representatives of the largest road construction organizations of the Russian Federation, as well as students of St. Petersburg universities – gathered in the Semenov conference hall of the Technopolis Polytech research building.

We are pleased to welcome our colleagues from PGUPS, GASU, St. Petersburg Forestry University and other universities to the Polytechnic University. The event is significant for us because it is held on the eve of the 125th anniversary of SPbPU. Thanks to the event, a discussion platform is being formed at the Polytechnic University, where we discuss the implementation of innovative technologies, the development of the road construction industry, issues related to the design, repair, and operation of highways and the creation of a comfortable urban environment. I would like for our universities to create centers for training highly qualified specialists, and for discussion platforms to become intellectual locomotives for the development of the road construction industry,” Marina Petrochenko, acting director of the SPbPU Institute of Civil Engineering, opened the meeting.

The director of the Higher School of Industrial, Civil and Road Construction, Yuri Lazarev, spoke about the relevance of the course of lectures. The development of new technologies and innovative materials in road construction through seminars of this kind should become the most important area of cooperation between employers and universities.
