Belarus implements projects in the field of medicine, ICT and ecology with Lithuania and Latvia

Belarus is implementing twelve joint projects with Lithuania and Latvia in the fields of medicine, pharmacy, information and communication technologies and ecology. This was announced today by  Andrei Kosovsky, First Deputy Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology at the opening of the Belarusian-Baltic forum "Cooperation - a catalyst for innovative growth," BelTA has learned.

“Within the framework of agreements on scientific and technical cooperation with Lithuania and Latvia, competitions for joint scientific and technical projects in promising areas were held this year. Projects were selected for implementation for 2019-2020,” Andrei Kosovsky said.

As specified in the press service of the SCST, we are talking about projects in the field of medicine, photonics and laser technology; pharmacy and industrial biotechnology; information and communication technologies; innovative technologies in agriculture; ecology, resource and energy saving technologies. “We are implementing eight projects with our Lithuanian colleagues, four with Latvian,” the press service said.

Belarusian universities and research institutions effectively interact with foreign universities and technology parks. Nevertheless, says Andrei Kosovsky, this is not enough. In order to expand the number of contacts between scientific and commercial organizations of Belarus and the Baltic countries, this forum is being held.

The forum allows its participants not only to keep abreast of scientific and technological cooperation, but also helps to form and strengthen long-term contacts, both new and time-tested. “We need to join efforts in order to create mutually beneficial conditions for the commercialization of scientific research, the production of innovative products, especially in the field of high technology, to achieve a deep synergistic effect in cooperation,” emphasized Andrei Kosovsky.

The Belarusian-Baltic Forum will provide an opportunity to assess the long-term prospects of cooperation in the field of education, science and business, to identify strategic areas of joint research and development, forms of cooperation that can bring maximum socio-economic effect to both sides.
