At the International Forum "Agroport. East. Kharkiv - 2017" PJSC "Kharkiv Tractor Plant" (Aleksandr Yaroslavskyy`s DCH group) signed a memorandum on cooperation with Kharkiv National Agricultural University named after V. Dokuchaev.
KhTZ General Director Andriy Koval stressed that a cooperation under the memorandum will help the company to introduce innovations.
"It is very important for us to understand the machinery and technologies that should be produced in order to make the machinery more demanded and optimal for the consumer," - said KhTZ General Director Andriy Koval.
"I think that science, education, production should always come hand-in-hand. Then we will win," - said Kharkiv National Agricultural University rector Aleksander Ulyanchenko in turn.
Kharkiv National Agrarian University became the third university with which KhTZ signed a memorandum of cooperation. Previously, similar documents were signed with Kharkiv National Karazina University and NTU "Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute".
Aleksandr Yaroslavskyy, owner and president of the DCH group (a candidate of technical sciences in agro-industrial complex himself) considers such cooperation of the enterprise with universities important and promising.
"For us it is very important. KhPI is a university that trains specialists. KhTZ is a Kharkiv, Ukrainian enterprise that needs such specialists. Therefore, for us it is very valuable, of course. Before that, we signed an agreement on joint cooperation with Kharkiv Karazina University. We see a great future for our plant," - said Aleksandr Yaroslavskyy during the IX International Economic Forum "Innovations. Investments. Kharkiv Initiatives!", held two weeks ago in a Kharkiv Palace 5* hotel owned by the businessman.
