We invite students to attend a lecture by Tatyana Proskuryakova, the World Bank's Regional Director for the Central Asia region, who will be discussing the most perspective projects of the organisation with particular insights into the technical fields.

The talk will be especially interesting for BSc, MSc and PhD students who strive to work on the global challenges for social impact. If you are interested in working on the projects in the intersection of social sciences and technical fields (e.g., e.g., blue economy, IT management) you will benefit from the insights of this lecture.

For the faculty, the lecture would provide an overview of the most pressing problems within the sustainable development sector and directions for perspective financial support.
