The Academy of science is nearing the anniversary in 2024, it will hit exactly 300 years. What brought Russian Academy of Sciences, founded by Peter I in your party? Wouldn’t it be a shame for it to scholars and the authorities of modern Russia? These issues were discussed Monday at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin and RAS President, academician Alexander Sergeyev.
“Academy of Sciences has always played a major role in the organization of large scientific projects. Its prestige and the attitude of the society are primarily related to these achievements, – said Sergeyev.– Unfortunately, the last time such major missions of the Academy are few, but we will hopefully be out on the growing path, and this growth will depend on how we manage scientific and technological achievements, new technology put at the service of society.”
Of course, there are, according to Sergeeva and more down to earth understanding of “Shine Academy”. “From afar our building (Lenin,14 – Ed.) looks decent, but should come closer and we’ll see rolled up statues inside the rickety tables, on the ceiling, streaks, spots… In General, we need to understand that you can’t even turn away from the simple, at first glance, tasks. Academy for the 300th anniversary needs to become visible.”
