Before the meeting Vladimir Gusakov noted the need for active cooperation between Belarus and European countries in the field of space research, biotechnology and nanotechnology industry. For this communication should be established between scientists of countries. "The very fact that the ALLEA Council meeting took place in Belarus confirms not only the interest to the Belarusian science, but also its recognition at the international level", — V. Gusakov stressed. After the meeting the guests got acquainted with the NASB permanent exhibition "Domestic scientific achievements for manufacturers" and the exposition of the Museum of the NASB History.
