On April 14, 2016 negotiations between Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus Vladimir Gusakov and President of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Stefan Vodenicharov were held. The sides intend to advance cooperation in biotechnologies and space technologies.
Vladimir Gusakov noted that scientists of both countries are united by long historical relations and, in this regard, mentioned great prospects for advancing cooperation between Bulgarian and Belarusian scientists. In his opinion, they should have common projects and should share the best practices more often. Vladimir Gusakov also intended to suggest advancing interaction in agribusiness, mechanical engineering, materials science, chemistry, biology and pharmaceutics.
In turn, Stefan Vodenicharov showed particular interest in such areas of cooperation with Belarusian scientists as metal working and milk processing. The President of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences invited Vladimir Gusakov and a delegation of Belarusian scientists to visit Sofia in order to get familiar with accomplishments of Bulgarian scientists.
As a result of negotiations a protocol to the agreement on scientific cooperation in 2016-2018 was signed. Visit of the President of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Stefan Vodenicharov will continue until April 16, 2016.
