MINSK, November 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Belarus’ first innovations week opened in Minsk on Tuesday.
Taking part in the forum entitled “Intellect. Initiative. Innovation” are scientists, representatives of governments and businesspeople from former Soviet republics and foreign countries.
Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Venezuela, India, China, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Germany and other countries put on display their innovations.
The program of the Innovations Week embraces a whole range of various international forums, including “Belarus’s Innovative Development Strategy for 2011-2015”, the Belarusian Third Innovations Forum and the Second Youth Innovations Forum.
An exhibition of the republic’s innovations and investment projects occupies a special place in the program of the forum. Belarusian scientists put on display their achievements in the spheres of electricity generation, petrochemistry, bio- and nano-technologies, machine building, ICT and others.
The organisers of the week-long forum planned to hold a Russian-Belarusian innovative conference, as well as bilateral scientific and technical forums of Belarus with India, Kazakhstan, China, Korea, Iran, Azerbaijan, Ukraine and the European Union’s states.
In addition, the agenda of the innovations week includes a venture fair and business contact exchanges. The latter events are aimed at the aid to Belarusian specialists in the discussion of prospects for the implementation of new international joint projects, including venture projects with investors from foreign countries.
The necessity to hold Belarus’ First Innovations Week is linked with the need to set up mechanisms, which will make it possible to raise the efficiency of the republican innovative system, as well as to intensify development of the innovative business and attract youth into those processes in the country.
