Promomed Group’s Biokhimik considers the possibility of a personnel training track with Uzbekistan.
The company is interested in scientific cooperation and student exchange with universities of Uzbekistan. Dmitry Zemskov, Executive Director of Biokhimik JSC, said this during a round table «Partnership between Russia and Uzbekistan in the pharmaceutical and medical industry sector» organized by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and held on April 26 in Tashkent.
The speaker shared the experience of the Biokhimik plant, one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in the Russian Federation, described cooperation with various universities of the country, and illustrated it with interactions with the Ogarev Mordovia State University. Over the years, the company and the university have developed strong partnership relations. This fruitful work resulted in establishment of the Department of Chemistry and Technology of Physiologically Active Substances in 2018, which uses the company’s production facilities in its activities. The university trains up to 30 specialists every year at this department to meet the needs of the plant. In addition, joint programs on education, research activities, on-the-job internship and training of plant employees on the basis of an educational institution are successfully implemented. The relevant experience is planned to be shared with universities of Uzbekistan.
«We are ready to consider cooperation with universities in Uzbekistan on exchange programs and joint scientific work,» Dmitry Zemskov said. «We are also interested in accepting Uzbek students to practice with further employment in our company, or with the return of qualified specialists to the pharmaceutical industry of Uzbekistan.»
Biokhimik JSC already has a practice of international exchange of experience. In the Soviet years, students from India, Syria, Iran and other countries learned the subtleties of pharmaceutical production here.
