More than 100 people participate in the Days of Belarusian Science, which takes place within the Forum of Russian and Belorussian Regions in the Business and Cultural Complex of the Embassy of the Republic of Belarus in the Russian Federation, the First Moscow State Medical University named after I. Sechenov and the Russian Academy of Sciences. Alexander Shumilin, Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus, took part in the ceremonial events. In his speech, he noted that the interaction of Belarus and Russia in the field of science, technology and innovation for a long time makes a significant contribution to the positive dynamics of the development of social, cultural and economic ties between the two states. At the same time, the implementation of the scientific and technical programs of the Union State is one of the most effective forms of bilateral cooperation.

The Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology also said that within the framework of the Days of Belarusian Science an agreement was reached to develop a new program of the Union State in the field of “Space Integration-Union State” (the government customers are the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and the State Corporation “Roskosmos”). In addition, the joint work of Belarusian and Russian scientists on another new program of the Union State  "Regenerative medicine" (the state customers are the Ministry of Health of Belarus and Russia) will begin, as a result of which it is expected to create at least three new biomedical cellular products in the near future.

At present, a list of 34 draft concepts of promising scientific and technical programs is formed. This list remains open, and in the near future, the SCST is going to supplement it with new projects, strategically important for the development of the two countries.
