During the visit, Mr. Barseghyan visited the ”Youth Innovation Resource Center,” followed the course of drone preparation and remote control, talked to coordinators and trainees, and got acquainted with their work.
In an interview with Gayane Gevorgyan, coordinator of the center, she said in her speech: “Youth Innovation Resource Center is still taking its first steps in Stepanavan, but has already involved those young people who are the first to try their skills at modeling drones in Stepanavan. Two more months and they will gain a solid knowledge, which will serve as a basis for providing a variety of services for the use of drones in Stepanavan and the region, particularly in tourism, agriculture, help in emergency situations, forest protection, as well as various event filming services.
A couple of days ago roundtable meeting was held, the aim of which was to present, discuss and redevelop disaster risk management plans for Educational institutions (schools and kindergartens), as well as to discuss the productive mechanisms of inputting them.
