For this purpose we have created a system of interdisciplinary research centers for advanced research and scientific and technological clusters, their task is to define the points of growth and development for science and technology which have the greatest potential for generation of long-term scientific and technological progress. Scientific collectives and the Academy centers under your leadership should focus on development of solutions for the creation of an integrated system and the close relationship between science, economy and society."
As of December 29, 2015 there were 86 Academicians in the NAS of Belarus.
