MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will attend Wednesday a ceremony marking the presentation of certificates and honorary badges to the winners of the governmental award in the field of science and technology, the government press service reported.
In 2012, 154 papers, including 31 by young scientists, were nominated for the government prize. Prizes were awarded to 49 papers, including seven ones by young scientists.
The papers found to be worthy of prizes "preliminarily went through a wide public discussion and then were recommended by the panels of the Inter-agency Council on the awarding of Russia's government prizes in the field of science and technology and chosen through a two-stage democratic selection procedure at the IAC sessions," a press service official pointed out.
The prize-winning scientific solutions have been implemented in many branches of the economy of Russia: medicine and healthcare, energy, chemistry, metallurgy, prospecting for and production of mineral resources, oil and gas, construction, agriculture, the light industry, computing engineering, machine building, transport, as well as defense and security of the country. "All the development efforts described in the papers were made at a high scientific and technical level and ensured a considerable economic or social effect," the government official emphasized.
A total of 442 people became prize winners.
The government prize in the field of science and technology is awarded with a view to stimulating sci-tech development and refining the system for the awarding of prizes for achievements in the field of science and technology.
According to a Cabinet resolution, beginning from January 1, 2014, twenty annual prizes of the Russian government will be awarded in the field of science and technology, including five ones for works dealing with defense and security — to a sum of two million rubles.
