Investments in educating and training qualified specialists
FELIX offers mentoring programmes to attract graduates from Moscow universities and colleges. There are currently plans for students with majors relating to woodworking at the Mytishchi Branch of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University to undergo internships at FELIX manufacturing sites, during which they will write practice-oriented term papers and theses. Moreover, FELIX regularly takes part in the "Discover #Mosprom" project run by the Moscow Department of Investment and Industrial Policy. It is a unique opportunity to visit the largest industrial enterprises in the capital. The project aims to popularise factories among Moscow citizens and visitors. In addition to implementing educational and informational projects, the Department of Investment and Industrial Policy of Moscow is developing mechanisms to supply additional support to local industry. According to Aleksey Artyomov, First Deputy Head of the Department, city authorities have already developed and implemented a number of measures to support industrial innovation. Another important objective of the project is to increase the number of younger personnel in the industrial workforce.
