Review of ideas and innovations, an article in SB Belarus Segodnya

Best developments of scientists were presented at the national meeting of the scientific community

The National Library became the site where everything advanced, created thanks to our scientists, was concentrated on the eve of the Day of Science. About 300 developments! The exhibition preceded the national meeting of the scientific community "Science is Intellectual Economy".  Maxim Ryzhenkov, First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration, read out a welcoming speech of Alexander Lukashenko there. The achievements of scientists were marked with many awards. They were also presented by Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chairman of the Council of Belarus. This exposition was the best answer to the question, what is the contribution to the economy of our scientists.

Vladimir Semashko, Deputy Prime Minister, noted that this exhibition is only a small part of what has been done and, as an example, mentioned the agriculture as an example:

‘If only slightly more than 1 million Belarusians were employed in the agrarian sector in 1990s, then last year there were three times less, 330 thousand. However, the pace of production not only did not fall. It was on the contrary. If we gathered 4.5 - 5 million tons of grain at that time, then there were 10 million tons in 2017. The contribution of technologies developed by our scientists is very great there.

The personal supercomputer "Scythian Geo Office" and the first complete Belarusian linguistic reference book, the work of the Joint Institute of Informatics Problems of the Academy of Sciences, included in the top 10 scientific achievements of 2017, took the place of honor.

‘There is an experimental sample of a supercomputer, and now we are busy producing a pilot one. It will be one and a half times more powerful with the same dimensions. A data processing center and a hardware-software complex are also being manufactured. They will be integrated together. We are going to finish the work this year,’ Victor Marshalovich, head of the Republican Supercomputer Center, shared his news.

The novelties were introduced also by the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry. Alginomax is a unique medicine for gastrointestinal problems, which does not contain harmful aluminum. Russia, Lithuania and Latvia are already interested in it. In addition, Phytolol, which has no analogues in the world, a product for medicine and sports based on plant steroids.

The universities and enterprises also amazed us in an amicable way. For example, BSU showed a promising biofertilizer, a complex micro preparation Zhytsen among other things, and Polytechnic, Technological Park BNTU, showed a range of medical ultrasound equipment, including for dentistry and treatment of oncological diseases of the skin. MAZ demonstrated a car-office on the ground in front of the library. There is a room for negotiations and a separate kitchen area with a full filling, from the TV and refrigerator to the coffee machine, gas stove and hot water. This is an excellent technical solution for negotiations at exhibitions held in the open air. The MTZ tractors are lined up along the growth line, new and modernized models, starting from 30 horsepower and ending with 460.

Direct Speech

Alexander Shumilin, Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology:

‘Science has made and will always contribute to the further development of the Belarusian economy. Over the past year, the Year of Science, scientists tried to make the maximum. More than 300 new developments are only by state scientific and technical programs. 9 new medications were registered, about 250 technologies were created to treat various diseases. Agrarian science made a huge leap, creating only about 70 fertilizers to increase yields.
