Belarus president: Green light only for research projects with a real effect

MINSK, 24 March (BelTA) – Only the research projects that have a great scientific value and a real effect should be given a green light. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement at the ceremony held on 24 March to present certificates of doctors of science and professors to research workers and pedagogues, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko stressed that presenting certificates of doctors of science and professors to the country’s best researchers at a solemn ceremony has become a good tradition in Belarus. The President said he believes that the fact acknowledges the important role that science plays in the life of the society and the high responsibility of the Belarusian scientific elite.

Alexander Lukashenko at the ceremony held to present certificates of doctors of science and professors to research workers and pedagogues“Getting the doctor of science degree or the professor title in Belarus is quite an accomplishment,” continued the head of state. “I constantly encourage the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles to put up a reliable barrier on the way of obviously weak and outdated works. It is necessary to support and give a green light only to those research projects that represent a great scientific value and have a real effect.”

According to Alexander Lukashenko, the training of scientific personnel is one of the key steps in improving the performance of research teams. It is the vigorous efforts of doctors of science and professors that carry weight in defining the creative potential of a research institute or an educational institution.

“Healthcare industry shows a good example in this regard,” noted the President. “Quite many dissertations on medical subjects have been defended in Belarus recently. In particular, in areas like clinical medicine, military surgery, oncology, endocrinology, reproductive health, epidemiology, and medical biology.”
