In the report Prof. Sokolov B.V. raised three sets of problems:

  • place and role of science and education in the structure of the modern information society;
  • interdisciplinary branch of system knowledge as a methodological basis for integrating education, science and production;
  • North-West Aerospace Monitoring Center as an example of integration of education, science and production.

During the speech Prof. Sokolov B.V. pointed out that a special place in solving the problems of managing the digital economy in the Russian Federation should be devoted to the organization of system (complex) modeling of complex production and technological processes and facilities.

To illustrate the modern tools for automating system modeling existing in Russia and in the world Prof. Sokolov B.V. dwelled on the recent results of SPIIRAS International Project ERASMUS +, Capacity building in higher education, № 73751-EPP-1-2016-1-DE-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP “InMotion: Innovative teaching and learning strategies in open modelling and simulation environment for student-centered engineering education”.
