Oleg Belozerov: “We need experts for the industry’s digital transformation”

A meeting of the Board of Trustees of the St. Petersburg State University of Economics (UNECON) has been held with the participation of Oleg Belozerov, CEO and Chairman of the Board of OJSC Russian Railways.

Within the framework of the meeting, which took place in St. Petersburg on 2 March 2018, an agreement was signed on cooperation between October Railways, a branch of Russian Railways, and UNECON.

“In 2016 we signed an agreement on strategic cooperation between Russian Railways and UNECON. Today we are entering into a more specific agreement between the university and October Railways, a division of Russian Railways. Cooperation with UNECON will enable us to train personnel with a high degree of specialist knowledge and expertise, including with regard to optimising transport costs and areas such as intermodal transport and economic calculations,” said Oleg Belozerov.

While in St. Petersburg, the head of Russian Railways also spoke at the plenary session of the I Forum of UNECON Graduates “The University in the Economics of the Future: Transformation of Occupations and New Challenges.”

Speaking about the trends in railway development, Oleg Belozerov spoke of digitalisation, production, economic efficiency and environmental safety as priority areas.

The Company, he said, was opening up and discovering fundamentally new areas of activity and in addition was working actively with innovative start-ups.

“The digital revolution will have a tremendous impact on the transport sector. Smart motion control technologies (including completely driverless), the Internet of Things, and decisions and solutions will be adopted on the basis of big data. Cyber ​​security issues will also come to the fore,” said the head of OJSC Russian Railways.

Taking into account similar tasks, said Belozerov, the Company had a great demand for specialists and experts who would be able to implement the digital transformation of the rail industry.
