We are especially proud that we are the leaders in the programs for industrial development of the building and construction industry. Preparations for the Universiade are in full swing, and TechnoNICOL Corporation plays a significant role in this process. To move forward we need to keep on learning. Our researchers and R&D centers must promote new technologies and knowledge not only for engineers, but for every single worker as well. We are interested in the fact that every builder has mastered this knowledge and put in practice. TechnoNICOL Training Center is one of the leaders in this very direction, and we fully support the Corporation in all its efforts. The place you currently occupy within the system of development and support of professional education, is extremely important for the Republic’.
