The new legal status of the Centre will allow scientists and engineers actively to expand the sphere of cooperation with prestigious world profile centres, including with the International Association of Science Parks (IASP).

Prior to the start of the conference, familiarization with the exhibition of digital technologies and innovative projects of the international science-technology park and German Development Cooperation (GIZ) under the motto «Transition to renewed energy sources - energy of the future» took place.

Results of cooperation of local and foreign companies in projects both realized and developed in our country were displayed at the exhibition. Thematic sections were devoted to the latest technologies and modern equipment, which are widely introduced today in the energy industry.

Delegates of the forum with great attention heard a welcoming message of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov to participants of the conference. In the message of the head of the state, it is noted that our century is characterised by technological and social development. Huge and prompt scientific and technical progress of the 21st century, along with the world countries, has led to introduction of innovative technologies in all spheres of economy of independent neutral Turkmenistan, including in the scientific system, preparation of highly qualified specialists, conduction of theoretical, practical and fundamental scientific researches, modernisation and development of science.

During the plenary session, speakers marked that innovative economy is, as a matter of fact, investments into continuous qualitative renewal of all economic processes and segments of the economic complex. And integral components of infrastructure of such economy are specialised higher educational institutions, research establishments focused on applied goals, industrial innovative clusters and technological centres of rationalisation ideas, proposals and ground breaking projects.

It was underlined that the industrially-innovative and information-technological researches, which are carried out by scientific research institutes, higher educational institutions, the Centre for young scientists at the Academy of Sciences of Turkmenistan and Central Board of the Magtymguly Youth Organisation as well as discoveries of scientists, engineers, technologists promote solution of major tasks of social and economic development of the country.

A prominent feature of the modern scientific system of Turkmenistan is that it is oriented on practical implementation of scientific achievements. As President Serdar Berdimuhamedov underlines, one should proceed from the fact significance of any scientific solution is as higher as its efficient introduction in manufacture. At this, process of interaction of science and manufacture assumes an active participation of not only scientists, but also engineers, technicians, inventors, rationalizers, front-rank workers in it.

It was especially underlined that the future of Turkmen sciences is closely connected with processes of integration of the country into the global scientific space, expansion of international interaction in the sphere of science and technologies. In this context, the special attention is given to development of cooperation with authoritative international organisations, leading centres of science.
