“This festival will firstly create new directions for cooperation and opportunities for new discussions because world-renowned scientists, Nobel Prize winners are going to visit Armenia. This event will particularly be of special importance for young scientists. With these events we should try to guide our young scientists and keep them in science. I welcome this initiative and on behalf of the National Academy of Sciences I want to thank the organizers, Mr. Israelian, the respective structures of our government who support the holding of the festival”, Ashot Saghyan said.

There was a phase when science capacity declined, but I always say that it is in the past, and now we are entering a new stage. Everyone will gradually understand that humanity has no future without science”, Garik Israelian said.
