The three Belarusian institutions and ITMO’s Technology Transfer Center are set to collaborate in such fields as:

  • Intelligent technologies and cyberphysical systems; 
  • Biochemical technologies and life sciences;
  • Photonics, quantum technologies, and new materials. 

Moreover, the new partners are planning to launch joint professional development programs in technology transfer and IP management. Additionally, the partners will support each other’s solutions as they introduce new products to each country's market.

“These agreements will allow us to start a more in-depth collaboration, producing a new perspective on scientific cooperation between our two countries,” said Konstantin Astankov, the deputy head of ITMO’s Technology Transfer Center who signed the agreements.

This partnership was established in line with the programs of the Union State, which means that the partners will be eligible to apply for the joint grant competition of the Russian Science Foundation and the Belarusian Republican Foundation for Fundamental Research, which aims to support young scientists in both countries.
