A joint Center for Technosphere Safety, Environmental Management and Water Use Technologies has been opened in the Republic of Belarus with NSUACE (Sibstrin)

Rector of NSUACE (Sibstrin), corresponding member of RAASN, Professor Yuri Skolubovich took part in the II Republican Forum of Young Scientists of Higher Education Institutions, which took place on May, 17-23 at the Belarusian-Russian University (Mogilev, Republic of Belarus). The purpose of the forum is to popularize education and science among young people, support talented youth and highlight their developments.

More than 100 representatives of universities of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation, including students, undergraduates, graduate students and teaching staff, took part in the Forum. At the opening of the Forum, First Deputy Minister of Education of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Bakhanovich delivered a welcoming speech.

One of the significant events of the Forum’s busy program was the grand opening of the joint Center for Technosphere Safety, Environmental Technologies and Water Use, established by the Belarusian-Russian University and the Novosibirsk State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (Sibstrin).

Also, during the opening of the center, a program of international cooperation between educational institutions of the two countries was signed for the next two years. The document was signed by the rector of NSUACE (Sibstrin) Yuri Skolubovich and the rector of the BRU Mikhail Lustenkov.

As noted by the rector of NSUACE (Sibstrin) Yuri Skolubovich, this Center will combine several important areas. “One of them is international cooperation. Another important area is joint development with Belarusian colleagues, joint training programs for youth and students. Belarus, like the Russian Federation, faces the task of raising a completely new and creative generation of industrial leaders who would raise our countries even higher and develop them. In the future, this development can be planned on the basis of the knowledge that they will receive at the center,” emphasized Yuri Leonidovich.

In addition, the Center will provide an opportunity for further communication between young scientists and teachers of the two countries and mutual enrichment. “An exchange program for students- environmentalist is planned for the summer. We will conduct training for an eco-school that has been operating in Novosibirsk for a long time. And we plan to transfer it to the base of the Belarusian-Russian University. We also plan that our students will actively communicate with students from Mogilev, represent our region and our achievements, and also get acquainted with yours,” said the rector of NSUACE (Sibstrin).
