At a meeting between Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko and President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Sergeev and vice presidents of the Russian Academy of Sciences, issues of interaction between the Government and the Academy in achieving national goals were discussed.

RAS President Alexander Sergeev told the deputy chairman about the state of fundamental and exploratory research in Russia and their resource support, and also noted the role of the Academy in coordinating work to restore scientific groundwork in the field of defense and national security.

The Deputy Prime Minister said: “I consider it necessary to update the Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development of the Russian Federation in 2016 to achieve the new national goals voiced by the President. Another important aspect for us to move on is preparation for monitoring the competitive environment. For leadership, we must clearly understand how world science lives today. Without correlating oneself with competitors, it will not be possible to ensure scientific and technological progress. And of course, it is necessary to build the right interaction between the Government, the academy and the external environment so as to ensure the synergy effect of science, education and digitalization for the country’s economy and social sphere. “

To build interaction on public administration issues, it was proposed to determine the head of digital transformation (RCT) in the RAS. Such leaders have already been appointed in ministries and departments, as well as in all regions of the country.

When discussing the need to create a center for fundamental virology, with which the RAS is speaking, including researching the structure and properties of a new coronavirus infection, Dmitry Chernyshenko suggested considering the possibility of its formation on the basis of institutions already operating in the country.
