Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko visited the national applied research center for organ and tissue transplantation at Minsk City Hospital No.9. During the tour of the applied research center Alexander Lukashenko was made familiar with the research papers nominated in 2016 for the state science and technology prize. The President underlined that state awards for scientific works should not be bestowed in a perfunctory manner. Otherwise, truly precious R&D products and accomplishments may fall off the radar. He said he would like the Belarus President Administration to analyze what economic effect the scientific works, which received state prizes in previous years, have produced.
