MP: Research results are in demand in Belarus’ manufacturing sector

MINSK, 26 September (BelTA) – Scientific solutions are in demand in Belarus’ manufacturing sector, Chairman of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus Mikhail Myasnikovich said as he attended the international conference on coherent and non-linear optics, lasers, and relevant applications and technologies (ICONO/LAT 2016) in Minsk on 26 September, BelTA has learned.

“Belarus is a European country with a high industrial potential. The manufacturing sector accounts for some 30% of the country’s economy, which is a driver for our science, and vice versa: scientific solutions are in demand in the manufacturing sector,” Mikhail Myasnikovich noted.

He added that those scientists and researchers, who put forward great ideas and suggestions that advance the most promising fields of the Belarusian science, are granted support in Belarus. “Our country has well-developed optical and microelectronic industry, optical engineering. It is important for us to preserve the high level of scientific research in these fields and keep up with the global trends to maintain the competitiveness of our economy,” Mikhail Myasnikovich stressed.

“If we imagine that scientific solutions are a boat in the sea, and the real economy sector is the land, then the task of the government is to be a reliable berth and to make sure that the innovative process continues successfully,” he added.

Minsk is hosting the ICONO/LAT 2016 conference on 26-30 September. It has been organized by the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, the Russian Academy of Sciences and Moscow State University. Representatives of top laser research centers from 15 European, American, and Asian countries are taking part in the conference. The forum is expected to discuss state-of-the-art accomplishments in laser physics, quantum optics and atomic-scale optics, non-linear dynamics of optical systems, optics of nanosized structures, optical diagnostics and data processing.
