Rosneft Completes and Launches Small Academy of Sciences Building in Yakutia

26 January 2022

Under an agreement with the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Rosneft has completed construction, commissioning and equipping of a building for the Small Academy of Sciences in the Chapayevo settlement in Khangalassky ulus. The new 7,000 square metre building will accommodate children from major cities as well as from remote parts of the Republic.

The Academy of Sciences’ centre for talented children has been opened in Yakutia as part of the Education national project. It follows the model of the Sirius Educational Centre. This centre will become a hub for research and project work by schoolchildren across the Far East region.

The three-storey Small Academy of Sciences building is comprised of two adjacent blocks, a 150-seat educational block and a 100-bed residential block, where children will be able to live during a training shift. All conditions have been met to organise a cutting-edge educational process: modern laboratories, a cryolithozone research and education centre, a biotechnology centre with genomics and ancient DNA laboratories, an IT centre, a co-working room, an assembly hall, a library with a reading room, a TV studio, sports and exercise rooms.

When the new classroom and laboratory building opens its doors to children, the number of students at the Small Academy of Sciences will triple from 5,000 to 15,000 per year.

Rosneft devotes special attention to creating a favourable social environment in the regions where it operates. The Company’s subsidiary, Taas-Yuryakh Neftegazodobycha, operates in Yakutia. It is one of the region’s main taxpayers and is also involved in implementing major educational and social projects. Between 2017 and 2021, the enterprise supported more than 1 billion roubles worth of community-oriented projects aimed at improving the quality of life of the region’s population.
