BSEU plans to create a science and technology park and a technology transfer center

Within the pilot project "University 3.0" at the Belarusian State Economic University, it is planned to create a science and technology park and a technology transfer center. This was discussed at a meeting of the Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Shumilin with students and teachers of BSEU. In addition, by 2023, the university is expected to open three industry research laboratories, two research centers and one research institute. “The concept “University 3.0” is a promising direction and trend in the modern development of a scientific organization. Therefore, it is important not only teach students, but also to form their entrepreneurial competencies to work on the commercialization of their own developments and proposals. Only then the university will become the center of innovative development,” stressed Alexander Shumilin. He also noted that one of the promising areas of development of the University of Economics is the development and testing of innovative business models that will form the basis of business plans for innovative projects. Currently, the State Committee for Science and Technology is forming the State Program for Innovative Development for 2021-2025, which will include the most effective projects for the creation of new industries that are hugely important for the development of the republic.

To realize the entrepreneurial potential at BSEU, research and production laboratories and scientific and practical centers have been created: the Center for Macroeconomic Research, the Sectoral Laboratory of Taxation and Tax Policy Issues, the Sectoral Laboratory of Antimonopoly and Price Regulation in the Field of Trade, the Center for Macroeconomic Research, the Innovative Business Incubator of the Faculty of Economics and management of BSEU and a number of others. In addition, the university has created a digital economy faculty to train specialists with advanced knowledge in information technology and economics.

The Belarusian State Economic University is the country's leading higher educational institution of economic profile. The structure of BSEU includes 11 faculties, the Institute for Master's Training, the Institute for Advanced Studies and Retraining of Economic Personnel, the Navagrudak Trade and Economic College, the Minsk College of Finance and Economics and the Minsk Trade College. The total number of students at the university, including branches, is about 18.5 thousand people.
