Gusakov: Great potential for cooperation between NASB, American scientists

MINSK, 1 September (BelTA) – The National Academy of Sciences of Belarus sees a great potential for cooperation with American scientists, BelTA learned from NASB Chairman of the Presidium Vladimir Gusakov on 1 September.

A delegation of the National Academies of the United States of America is in Belarus on 30 August – 7 September upon the NASB’s invitation. The delegation is led by Glenn Schweitzer, Director of the Office for Central Europe and Eurasia.

Vladimir Gusakov remarked that the Belarusian side had put forth the initiative to hold negotiations and determine prospects of future cooperation between the academies of the two countries. “We believe we have a good potential. We can establish quality long-term cooperation in a number of areas relating to biological sciences, biotechnologies, chemical sciences, information sciences, math sciences, physics, humanitarian sciences,” said the Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.

In his words, the current American delegation can be classified as a fact-finding one. “If positive information about our academy of sciences is available and the information is already shaping to be rather positive, the next visit may be at the level of the presidents of the national academies of the USA,” stated Vladimir Gusakov.

In turn, Glenn Schweitzer, Director of the Office for Central Europe and Eurasia of the National Academies of the USA, remarked that cooperation between Belarusian and American sciences can and should be promoted.
