As a doctoral student, then the National Mining Academy in 1998, Sergei Fedorovich Vlasov was faced with the prospects of training of the teaching staff, analyzing the potential age of the faculty and the effectiveness of training Ph.D. professors NSU. The results of the analysis was introduced to the rector of NSU. Information was taken into consideration, and some time later, Gennady Pivnyak invited to take an active part in developing the concept of training scientific-pedagogical staff. This was the impetus for the creation of the Council of Young Scientists at the National Mining Academy of Ukraine.
The first task was to create a database of young scientists. To determine the objectives of our work was a survey of young scientists who identified the key problems: hunger for information (no information about the requirements for registration of theses and publications in special editions), the publication of scientific articles, limited access to computers and the Internet.
Meeting with an amazing woman – Chief Executive Officer of the Fund of social protection, support and assistance to scientists of Ukraine and their families Cherednichenko Larissa Lukyanovna. Her energy, health, optimism, ability to generate lots of ideas may even envy the young.

It should be noted that our proposal was supported by the Office of Education and Science, State Administration, for which special thanks to the Deputy Head of Department in the years Viktorov V.G.
