MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev urged Russian scientists to implement scientific developments in this country and not abroad.
“We all follow it in the news what is happening somewhere and what creative products are being made. Very often we hear that this or that innovation has been initially created in the Soviet Union, for example, and only then it was started to be used abroad. It is always frustrating to see that,” Medvedev said on Wednesday at a ceremony marking the presentation of certificates and honorary badges to the winners of the Government Prize in the field of science and technology.
The prime minister expressed hope that Russian scientists would use their talent and scientific achievements for the benefit of the country: “We should do our best to ensure that everything however useful created in this country will also be implemented here.”
He noted the interdisciplinary character of modern discoveries which involve main classical sciences and inter-industry research.
“And we should also develop legislation,” he added. “The government will keep working on it.”
Medvedev said that 123 papers were nominated for the government prize this year, including 31 by young scientists. Prizes were awarded to 42 papers, including seven ones by young scientists.
The prime minister noted that most prize-winning scientific solutions had already been implemented in many branches of Russia’s economy.
“A large number of projects, certainly, concern the issues of security in this country,” he said, “Many programmes working for security are also working for the country’s economy, and vice versa.”
“It is very important that a considerable part of innovations has already been protected by patents and certificates alongside by some contracts concluded,” Medvedev said, adding that protection of scientific research should be brought to the forefront nowadays.
