The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, in cooperation with the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB), convened an inter-academy workshop on December 15-16, 2015, in Minsk, Belarus. Six American specialists in outreach activities of universities and more than 20 Belarusian scientists, educators, and government officials participated in the workshop. The goals of the workshop were to identify activities of mutual interest to the Academies and to identify technical areas for cooperation.
Over the course of two days, speakers from the U.S. delegation described how research innovation and new technologies move from laboratories on university campuses to commercial applications. The American specialists addressed these issues from a variety of perspectives, including policy-based (legal, regulatory, and institutional) incentives, and university-based infrastructures designed to support and facilitate technology transfer. Two case studies of technologies developed in the laboratory with commercial applications were presented: 3D MRI CT scanners, and techniques for enhancement of agricultural productivity and profitability. Speakers from the NASB followed two principal themes—research accomplishments of their respective institutes in the fields of engineering, information technologies, material sciences, and agriculture, and new ways to collaborate with scientists in the United States.
