Council of young scientists

The council of young scientists of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus is a permanent public body under the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. The councils of young scientists were created at the organizations and the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus with the goal of increasing the participation of young scientists in the development of the scientific potential of the Academy, overcoming the negative trends in the age structure of scientific personnel, the formation of science policy and the integration of science and education.
The council of young scientists of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus has its own website.

Council of young scientists

Historical background of the Council of young scientists of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus


Bureau of graduate students

It is legitimate to say that the institutionalization of academic youth activities began from the first years of the existence of the Belarusian Academy of Sciences (BAS). In March 1929 the Postgraduate Office was formed - a collegiate body, which included applicants for academic degrees. From that moment on, the history of the Council of young scientists began (and not since 1965, as previously thought). The first documented Chairman of this Bureau is a graduate student by the name of Bobrik (name and patronymic unknown). The bureau did a great job of training young scientists.
Youth Council was one of the first in the USSR. Thus, in the minutes of the general meeting of October 21, 1929, it is noted: “"Comrade Bobryk says that our Bureau called on the social competitions Bureau of graduate students of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, but the call has not yet been accepted because there is not yet organized Bureau".
Already since 1931, the Institute of Graduate Studies was operating in the BAS system. Among the academic youth, many initiatives and future masters of national science were born.
After the liberation of Belarus from the German invaders, there was an acute question not only of restoring the material base of the Academy of Sciences, but also of replenishing its personnel. This problem was one of the central in the activities of the academic komsomol organization.

At the helm of the council

On the proposal of the Komsomol Committee and in accordance with the Presidium resolution of November 20, 1965, the Council of young scientists of the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR was established. Its first Chairman was an employee of the Institute of Physics - Vladimir Rubanov.
The Committee of the komsomol and the CYS in 1966 proposed to hold an annual review competition of the work of young scientists. The organizers were: the Presidium, the party committee, the komsomol committee and the CYS. It was these bodies that until the early 1990s determined the youth policy in the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR.
Under the Central Committee of LCUYB, the All-Republican CYS acted. Its chairman for many years was Vladimir Sprindzhuk (Corresponding Member of the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR).
During the 1960s and 1970s, prominent scientists of the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR showed active activities in the youth movement. They have done a lot for the development of youth scientific creativity in the Republic: Alexander Rubanov (academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus), Petr Prokhorenko (then secretary of the Komsomol of the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR, later academician). Thanks to the organizational skills of these leaders, many young Belarusian scientists took part in important events. The experience of the scientific and technical society of schoolchildren, which was established in 1975 under the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR, deserves attention.
During the 1960s – 1980s, the CYS of the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR became a school of life for many leading figures of Russian science. Their scientific and managerial experience is an example for today's scientific youth. Academician Viktor Parfenov, Nikolai Rumak (corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR) are worth mention among the former Chairmen of the Council of Ministers of Ukraine. Also, the Deputy Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, Sergei Kilin, headed the CYS in the early 1980s and was awarded with the Prize of the Komsomol.

In the difficult years

The beginning of the 1990s was marked by socio-political and socio-economic changes in Belarus. There was no party and Komsomol organizations, with which the work of CYS was closely connected.
Despite the difficulties in the activities of the Academy of Sciences of Belarus in the 1990s, young scientists were not deprived of attention. Thus, the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus adopted a number of resolutions aimed at improving their financial situation, as well as on holding competitions for the best youth scientific work.
In accordance with the decree of the Presidium of October 22, 1998, the CYS of the NAS of Belarus was established. Alexander Shablovsky, Candidate of Philology, became its chairman.

Strengthening positions

In connection with the strengthening of the structure of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus in the early 2000s, real prerequisites for the development of youth policy emerged. To this end, the Decree of the Presidium of March 20, 2003 approved a new Regulation on the Councils of young scientists at the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. Andrei Khudoley was elected Chairman of the renewed CYS (Institute of Heat and Mass Transfer of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus).
An important undertaking in the activity of the CYS was the holding, with the support of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, the conference "Youth in Science".
Svetlana Pashkevich (currently Head of the laboratory at the Institute of Physiology of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus) has done a lot for the development of the youth scientific community. Thanks to her persistence in the institutes, the Councils of young scientists were organized, new forms of work appeared, sports activities became more active.
In recent years, thanks to the comprehensive support of Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus V.G. Gusakov, the Council of young scientists together with the Presidium organized a number of major events: I Eurasian Forum of Young Scientists, School of Young Scientists "Turnkey Scientist", European School of Biotechnology, Festival of Science, founded the youth competition "100 Talents of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus".
Implemented a set of measures to support talented young people in the Academy of Sciences allowed to increase the number of young scientists from 18 to 25% of the total number of researchers in the period from 2014 to 2019.
Our brief insight into history has convincingly shown that the Council of young scientists is the optimal institution in the implementation of academic youth policy, as well as a successful form of youth self-organization for the realization of creativity in scientific activity.

The Council of young scientists of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus is a permanent public body operating under the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. The Council heads the system of councils of young scientists in the Academy of Sciences and coordinates its work.
