From 22th to 27th of August, the 45th world championship in professional skills «WorldSkills» was held in Kazan. 1354 contestants from 63 countries competed for the title of best specialist in their field. In total, 56 professional competencies were presented.
We note with pride that, when choosing the equipment for "Laboratory and chemical analysis", the organizers of WorldSkills preferred the instrumentation from Shimadzu.
ANALIT Ltd - the general distributor of Shimadzu in Russia, supplied the following analytical equipment from Shimadzu for the Laboratory and chemical analysis platform: two LC-20 liquid chromatographs with spectrophotometric detectors, two GC-2010 Plus gas chromatographs with flame ionization detectors and with HS-10 vapor-phase dispensers.
Throughout the championship experts from ANALIT provided methodological and technical support for the competition at the highest level!
Young specialists from 9 countries took part in the "Laboratory and chemical analysis" competition. During the competition, the contestants had to perform qualitative analysis using HPLC, as well as qualitative and quantitative analysis using GC, in which they had to come up with an approach to solving the problem, conduct sample preparation and process the results obtained with the help of Shimadzu chromatographs.
We congratulate Anastasia Kamneva — the winner of the competition "Laboratory and chemical analysis", who scored the maximum amount of points (845 points) among all the participants of the championship. The fifth-year student of the Yaroslavl state technical University brilliantly coped with the tasks and received the main award - the Albert Vidal Award.
Every two years WorldSkills hosts the world skills competition which attracts more than 1,300 Competitors from more than 60 countries. At this event, young people from all corners of the world gather together for the chance to win a prestigious medal in their chosen skill. There are competitions in 56 skills across a wide range of industries — from carpentry to floristry; hairdressing to electronics; and autobody repair to bakery. The Competitors represent the best of their peers and are selected from skill competitions that are held in WorldSkills Member countries and regions.
One of the legacies of WorldSkills Competitions is the increased visibility of skilled professional education, as one of the tools of social and economic transformation.
The Competition also provides leaders in industry, government, and education with the opportunity to exchange information and best practices regarding industry and professional education. New ideas and processes inspire school-aged youth to dedicate themselves to technical and technological careers and build a better future.
