MOSCOW, May 27. /ITAR-TASS/. There are multiple areas of interest for scientific cooperation among the emerging states of the BRICS assembly, including nano- and biotechnologies, transport, mineral exploration and climate change observations, Igor Ganshin, Deputy Director of the Agency for International Cooperation at the Ministry of Education and Science, told a Moscow conference on Tuesday.
Specialists gathered to discuss the priority areas of development for BRICS, bringing Russia together with Brazil, India, China and South Africa as a new regional force that can influence global affairs.
Among joint research activities of mutual interest to the BRICS states were also aeronautics and space, microelectronics, food security and sustainable agriculture, Ganshin said.
“We should anticipate those challenges and threats facing the BRICS economies and find opportunities for cooperation to gain a competitive edge in the world economy,” he said.
Ganshin supported the idea of universities operating as a network in the BRICS assembly, mentioned earlier by Russian People's Friendship University Rector, Vladimir Filippov.
