MINSK, 25 January (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko talked about the conditions for the emergence of new scientists capable of achieving great results as he met with the National Academy of Sciences, BelTA reports.
The head of state stressed the need to preserve the continuity and to search for capable young people in science: "It is important that the chain ‘school - university - academic institutions' functions effectively."
During the conversation with scientists, the president asked about the process of scouting for young talents, monitoring their successes. "Such children should be led to science literally by the hand. Otherwise, we will not have new Alferovs, Borisevichs and Vysotskys,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. “This is the solution to the major problem of preservation and development of scientific schools. Each of you, dear academicians, corresponding members, doctors and professors, should be followed by your students. They are the confirmation of the viability of your ideas."
The president also touched upon the topic of the children's technopark. “The idea was to promote the continuity of generations, raise science-minded children. I think you will brief me today on scientists' involvement in this process,” the head of state said.
