From the mood we already understand that everything is not limited to signing this document, but a serious partnership starts,” - said YSU Rector Aram Simonyan.

 

Director of “Enterprise Incubator” Foundation Bagrat Yengibaryan notes this cooperation is a good chance to combine great potential and development prospects in Armenia: “There are problems whose solution does not require programmers, but mathematicians, physicists and chemists who can solve these problems and provide great revenue for the country. Not many countries can afford it, and there is great potential in our country.”
