SCIENTIFIC AND SCIENCE ORGANIZING ACTIVITIES OF THE SB RAS IN OCTOBER
ACADEMICIAN V.I. MOLODIN IS 65
Congratulations from the SB RAS Presidium.
WHERE DO YOU GO, RUSSIAN SCIENCE?
To save science, scientists do not have to play to the authorities in their crazy endeavors. “We’ll go through the fire, get burnt, but we’ll be honest to convictions” – bequeathed to us N.I. Vavilov.
What is more preferable: shock therapy or evolutionary reform of the Russian Academy of Sciences?
PHYSICIAN, HEAL THYSELF!
At the heart of so-called reform of the RAS is one fundamental error, “old” Academy of Sciences supposedly does not match the progressive reality. Therefore, there is a brain drain from Russia, and the science is weak, and the upgrading is poor, and the country's defense leaves much to be desired. And it’s entirely the fault of “Grand Dame RAS”, being not able to keep up with the rapid social progress.
