SOCAR - important projects
Nazim Valiyev, Head of Science and Technology Department at SOCAR
– As you may know, SOCAR closely follows the issue of personnel training and education, and that is in addition to its activities with regard to ensuring the energy security of our country. Traditionally, the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) develops and implements various scholarship programs. It also finances the education of talented students abroad and is engaged in initiatives that cause great interest. I would like to note that for the fourth consecutive year now, SOCAR is the sponsor of the special scientific foundation which was established to stimulate talented scientists of Azerbaijan. In parallel, the company implements important social projects that are also of immense interest for the public at large. Among these events is the establishment of the Higher School of Oil four years ago. It was an additional contribution to the development of education in the field of oil and gas. The school offers a unique opportunity to learn and practice at the same time, which further ensures the development of a highly qualified workforce.
This is the third participation of SOCAR in the Education and Career exhibitions, as SOCAR aims to increase the interest of young people in studying and working in petroleum field.
