Doctor of Science, from Institute of Science and Technology, Sung Won Seo: «I am from South Korea, and as you know, our country once was one of the poorest countries in the world after the Second World War and the Korean War, and even countries like Ethiopia and Bangladesh provided us with a humanitarian help. So, since our country does not have a lot of natural and mineral resources, it was decided to invest in human capital. So, plans were made in the shortest possible time, so the economy began to develop really quickly and precisely at the expense of human capital. And, of course, Russia is famous for its developments and achievements, for example, in the space industry, and also very much is devoted to the development of scientific and technical creativity of young people. As we know, the tagline of this event is «Let’s do science, let’s make friends,» but I would like to add something to this expression: «Let’s do science, let’s make friends and let’s create our future together. Thank you!»
