Under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Armenia, the staff of the Bureau of the Armenian General Benevolent Union met with Serzh Sargsyan on March 30, during which the report of the last year was summed up, the results of the activities of the 2012-2017 Armenian Genocide and pointing out the main directions of the upcoming projects.
The importance and necessity of the generation change in science was once again emphasized. Young scientists have noted with satisfaction that in recent years there is a positive shift in this direction.
The program designed to promote the creative development of young scientists was established in 2012 by supporting young people who want to pursue science.
"During the meeting the main directions have been identified, which need more attention. Particularly, the founders of the smooth generation change and the introduction of the necessary mechanisms in this process were discussed," - says Karlen Khachatryan, Head of the Chair of Management and Business of YSU Faculty of Economics and Management.
Presenting the activities in 2017, the program’s executives distributed it to the main directions: young scientists’ international scientific trips, as well as financial support for conferences, scientific schools, seminars in the Republic of Armenia, scientific scholarships for young scholars in scientific grants, etc.
K. Khachatryan also underlined that the President of the Republic of Armenia has instructed to pay great attention to applied sciences, so the members of the project are planning to implement a number of interdisciplinary projects, including a number of spheres of science.
While the reporting meeting was held within the framework of the project’s beneficiaries, the results of the projects and competitions were highly appreciated, and the proposals will be discussed during the upcoming meetings.
"We work with maximum transparency. That is, any applicant can see what directions there are in the program, how many applicants are registered in the competition. Taking into account the limited budget of the program and the large number of applications, we also have to reject some of the applicants, but we basically justify the decision," - said the head of the chair and added that the work will continue in 2018 with the same principles and vigor.
