Develop the Armenian Science Citation Index
Provide statistical, methodological and analytical information about science in the Republic of Armenia to the State Committee of Science, RA Ministries, National Academy of Sciences, as well as other concerned organizations and scientific community
Elaborate methodology for statistics in the field of science, assessment, analysis and forecasting of scientific potential
One of the challenges that Armenia has faced since independence was (and continues to be) the disintegration of the scientific community, which manifests itself in brain drain. This process is expressed in two main ways: 1․ withdrawal from science; 2․ emigration from Armenia. As a result of the second process, the Armenian scientific diaspora has significantly increased at the expense of many researchers from Armenia. From the point of view of RA national security and development, it is very important to preserve the Armenian scientific community and then find a model for its development. One way to do that is to develop a flexible, effective and realistic model for cooperation between Armenia and the Armenian scientific diaspora, which will enable, on the one hand, to develop Armenian science and, on the other hand, create mutually beneficial conditions for cooperation and offer them to Armenian researchers abroad. This research project aims to conduct an inventory of Armenian researchers abroad, assess the current state of cooperation between Armenia and the Armenian scientific diaspora, as well as develop a flexible, effective and realistic model for cooperation between Armenia and the Armenian scientific diaspora based on international experience.
According to the results of the Armenian-Italian call, held jointly by the National Research Council of the Italian Republic and the Science Committee of the MESCS, funding for 8 topics was guaranteed. Among them is the proposal of the Center for Scientific Information Analysis and Monitoring. It was jointly presented by the head of the Center, Ph.D. Shushanik Sargsyan and Professor Giovanni Abramo,...Read more
