Balkan region joined the conference via video link.
During the conference, teachers and students spoke about the results of their research work, as
well as about the prospects for cooperation with foreign partners in various fields of science.
As the speakers noted, comprehensive work is being carried out in Turkmenistan to strengthen
the scientific research base and create a digital economy based on advanced technologies and
fundamental theoretical sciences. In addition, large-scale work is aimed at training qualified
specialists who are distinguished by ingenuity and increasing the enthusiasm of talented youth
A striking example of successful scientific activity is the International University of Oil and Gas
named after Yagshigeldy Kakaev. Here, in February 2023, the first international conference
”Scientific and technical possibilities for obtaining hydrogen energy from natural gas” was held
for the first time.
Teachers and students of the university regularly publish scientific articles about their research
and project work. For five months since the beginning of this year, more than 240 materials
have been published in foreign and domestic journals, the authors of which are teachers and
