Michal Kleiber: Belarusian science can offer a lot to the European Union and the world

MINSK, 21 November (BelTA) – Belarusian science can offer a lot to the European Union and the world on the whole, BelTA learned from President of the Polish Academy of Sciences Michal Kleiber during his visit to the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.

“Today I visited several institutes of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. I was glad to see the state of Belarusian science. Belarus can offer a lot both to the European Union and the world on the whole as far as the development of the scientific sphere is concerned,” said Michal Kleiber.

As promising avenues of cooperation Michal Kleiber mentioned biology, physics, humanitarian and social sciences. “The development of humanitarian sciences plays an important role for the development of science on the whole because we need to know our cultural legacy, our history,” stressed the President of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

According to Vladimir Gusakov, Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, cooperation avenues have not been determined yet. “We have invited our colleague to Belarus in order to make up our minds about the prospects. Today we are going to make a list of projects regarding future cooperation. The Polish side will do the same. Then we will bring them together, analyze, and compile a common document — an agreement on cooperation. I think the document will be signed soon,” added the official.

Belarusian and Polish scientists are busy implementing 93 joint projects, including 20 projects on agrarian and biological sciences, 14 on humanitarian sciences, 22 on physics and math, one on medical and pharmaceutical sciences, 24 on technical ones, 12 on chemical sciences and geoscience. As many as 38 travel grants have been allocated for the sake of taking part in events held in Poland.

President of the Polish Academy of Sciences Michal Kleiber was in Minsk on 21 November for the sake of holding negotiations on expanding Belarusian-Polish scientific and technical cooperation. The Polish scientist visited the Bioorganic Chemistry Institute, the state enterprise Academpharm, the Microbiology Institute, the B.I. Stepanov Institute of Physics, and the History Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
