#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Moscow State University Geology Faculty’s associate professor Aniset Gabriel Kochofa (Benin Republic Extraordinary Ambassador to Russia and CIS countries) came to Taimyr to participate in the Arctic Challenge grant project of the Taimyr College, which is supported by the Our Norilsk endowment fund.
The project is aimed at developing a methodology for training and attracting personnel for the Arctic, creating a recruiting center in Taimyr.
In Dudinka, Aniset Gabriel Kochofa gives lectures to college students on drilling oil and gas wells.
Recall that the competition for long-term social projects of the Our Norilsk foundation is part of the Main Resource program, which the foundation launched in 2021 for Norilsk and Taimyr.
Nine NPOs became winners in the competition, including two Taimyr organizations – the Taimyr College and the Taimyr Museum of Local Lore. Taimyr College received the largest grant – 10 million rubles in the Search and Attraction category.
Among the experts and partners that the college attracted to the Arctic Challenge there are the Far East and the Arctic Development Corporation, the Human Resource Management Advanced Research Institute, the Ural Federal University’s Philanthropy Research Center.
The idea of the college, how to help ourselves and the entire territory with personnel, has acquired the features and potential of a regional project. Almost all industries are well aware of what it costs now to search for specialists and how difficult it is to attract promising personnel even offering a good social package. Therefore, many people follow the process of creating a recruiting center, primarily the Our Norilsk endowment fund.
