On September 8, 2021, the First International Forum of Young Scientists, “Intellectual Potential of Independent Kazakhstan: 30 years of Formation and Development”, organized by the Science Council of the Nursultan Nazarbayev Foundation, took place in Almaty (the Republic of Kazakhstan).
The President of the Russian Academy of Sciences, academic Alexander Sergeev, took part in the opening ceremony. During his speech, the President of the Academy noted the priority areas of cooperation between the countries, as well as successful joint scientific activities.
“The Russian Federation and Kazakhstan cooperated swiftly on vaccination efforts, and later on the production of Sputnik V. More than 5 million doses of the Russian vaccine have already been produced by the Karaganda Pharmaceutical Complex. This was made possible by the effective cooperation of Russian and Kazakh immunologists and doctors,” said academic of the RAS Sergeev.
The President of the Russian Academy of Sciences also mentioned the “Agreement on Research Cooperation in the Caspian Sea”, which is to be signed by all five countries of the Caspian Sea region.
One might recall that, during the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, a working meeting was held between the President of the Russian Academy of Sciences academic Alexander Sergeev and the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Roman Sklyar. During the meeting, the parties discussed scientific cooperation between the two countries, as well as the joint solution of water use and hydrogeology issues, in which the Kazakh leadership have actively involved local scientists.
Moreover, a new agreement on cooperation between the Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan will be signed in December 2021.
The First International Forum of Young Scientists “Intellectual Potential of Independent Kazakhstan: 30 years of Formation and Development” was launched upon the country’s 30th anniversary of Independence as a large-scale scientific platform to unite acclaimed scientists, young researchers, investors, innovative entrepreneurs and those promoting research done by government bodies.
