MOSCOW, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Sergei Aldoshin, the vice-president of the Russian Academy of Sciences, on Monday expressed the hope that Russian President Vladimir Putin would soon meet Vladimir Frolov, the president of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Aldoshin told journalists after an extraordinary meeting of the Academy’s presidium on Monday that the Russian Academy of Sciences could improve the reform of Russian science which, according to many academicians, had started in an absolutely wrong direction.
"We do hope for this meeting,” the vice-president of the Russian Academy of Sciences said.
The presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences on Monday voted against the proposed reform. Its resolution says that if the reform is implemented, an amorphous organization run on unclear and incoherent principles will be created.
"A change in subordination of the Russian Academy of Sciences institutions will destroy the principle of unity in managing fundamental science and will make either impossible or extremely ineffective the implementation of functions which the law fixes after the Russian Academy of Sciences,” the Academy’s presidium said in its resolution.
“Not a single association of prominent scientists in a modern world is capable of solving analytical and expert tasks without daily interaction of scientific collectives, without information support, without an experimental base and modern laboratories,” Aldoshin emphasized.
