Aleksandr Chepik shared his impression of his visit to Petrozavodsk State University, "I liked the methods of personnel selection developed by the Budget Monitoring Center of Petrozavodsk University. I’ve seen promising samples, innovative technologies of wood processing took my particular interest. There were many things I liked. Most importantly, these are developments that are demanded at the international level. In other words, people who work here set their sights on the tasks not to replicate what has been previously done; they aren’t even working on improving the old. Instead, they break new ground, develop new direction and become the best. It is amazing!"
