Belarus could become a platform for the project 100 ideas for the CIS. School children, students and young scientists of the Commonwealth are ready to present their projects in April next year. This was discussed at the Council of the Republic with participation of the finalists of the project 100 ideas for Belarus and the winners of the BRICS and EAEU International Youth Forum on Science and Innovation. Mikhail Myasnikovich says, young scientists should pay more attention to patenting their inventions.
