Putin considered it logical to develop the Higher Attestation Commission under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences

MOSCOW, February 8 Russian President Vladimir Putin considers the further development of the Higher Attestation Commission under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences appropriate and logical.
“”It is logical and expedient for the further development of the Higher Attestation Commission and the organization of its activities to be carried out under the auspices of the Academy of Sciences. And the Higher Attestation Commission should be headed by status by one of the vice-presidents of the Russian Academy of Sciences,” Putin said during a ceremony in the Kremlin, dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

He emphasized that “the Russian Academy of Sciences should take over the management of the activities of dissertation councils, the examination of their decisions and the analysis of dissertations put forward for defense.” The Academy, according to him, needs to directly participate in the formation of new approaches to the awarding of academic degrees and titles, in the certification of scientific and scientific-pedagogical personnel. In addition, it is necessary to strengthen the role of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the formation and coordination of fundamental research, to strengthen the scientific and methodological management of the Russian Academy of Sciences by scientific centers and universities of the country, Putin added.
“Here I would like to say especially about scientific organizations that have the high title of academic. They are historically connected with the Academy, they are united by common achievements, scientific triumphs. And it is the RAS – regardless of the departmental subordination of academic institutions – that should determine the directions of their activities and take direct participation in resolving issues of financing, selecting candidates for their leaders. Moreover, all this should take place according to uniform, understandable, and transparent procedures for the scientific community,” the president said.
When reorganizing or changing the jurisdiction of such scientific organizations, their main goals and tasks, he continued.
“The loss and ineffective use of their research infrastructure is unacceptable, as well as any decisions, especially bypassing the Academy, to separate from the institutes the pilot production facilities and medical facilities necessary for training, conducting experiments and testing,” Putin emphasized.< br />All regional branches and centers of the Russian Academy of Sciences should work unitedly, towards common goals, he added. According to him, the RAS is called upon to form a unified base of scientific publications and research, to provide conditions for the exchange of scientific information, to promote the results of domestic scientists and popularize science in Russia and abroad.
“”In this regard, I consider it right to include in the structure of the RAS The Russian Center for Scientific Information, which contains a huge array of research publications and other data in demand by scientists, as well as the Nauka publishing house, which is almost the same age as the Academy, dates back to 1727,” Putin said.
