Draft inter-state program of CIS innovative cooperation until 2030 to be considered at Economic Council meeting in September

The draft Interstate Program of Innovative Cooperation of the Member States of the Commonwealth until 2030 is planned to be submitted for consideration by the CIS Economic Council in September this year. This was announced today at a meeting of the Interstate Council for Cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation by Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Shumilin.

“Our meeting is being held in a videoconference mode - in conditions dictated by the unfavorable epidemiological situation in the Commonwealth states. In this difficult situation related to the Covid-19 pandemic, an important role is given to international scientific, technical and innovative cooperation, including in the field of medicine. As history shows, in the face of a threat to all of humanity, science, as always, comes to the fore and unites all countries. The epidemic will undoubtedly end, and we should have a clear idea of ​​how we will develop science and the economy in our countries. This promise - interstate cooperation - is laid down in the new program of innovative cooperation between the CIS member states until 2030, which we will discuss today in order to submit it to the CIS Economic Council in September in the established manner, ”he said. The SCST Chairman also noted that the 2030 Program is focused on creating new high-tech goods and services, conducting fundamental, search and applied research, implementing joint innovative projects, developing the infrastructure of scientific, technical, industrial and innovative cooperation.

Program-2030 is being developed in the current Interstate Program of Innovative Cooperation of the CIS Member States for the period up to 2020, within the framework of which 10 interstate innovation projects are being completed that give concrete results for the economies of the CIS member states. For example, as a result of a project to create test systems for serological diagnosis of hepatitis E (participants - Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Russia), viral hepatitis E was first detected among people and animals and its widespread distribution was shown. On the basis of the BSU Unihimprom enterprise, experimental models of test systems are being manufactured and tested, industrial production is planned. The developed technologies as a whole will help to effectively counter the spread of various viral diseases, which in the modern world, as practice has shown, is a very urgent task. As part of the project to create miniature magnetic field sensors and autonomous sources of electric energy (participants - Belarus and Russia), devices have been developed for measuring magnetostriction of ferromagnetic films and temperature measurements. To date, 6 such facilities are already used in scientific and educational organizations of Russia.

ReferenceThe Interstate Council for Cooperation in the Scientific, Technical and Innovative Spheres was established on November 20, 2009, as a body of industry cooperation of the Commonwealth of Independent States in the scientific, technical and innovative fields. IC STI is a permanent coordinating body of CIS industry cooperation, carrying out its activities within the powers delegated to it by the states parties to the Agreement, and is accountable to the Council of Heads of Government and the Economic Council of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Members of the IC STI represent 8 states: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan and Ukraine.

In December 2013, the Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus, Alexander Shumilin, was elected Chairman of the IC STI.
