Best projects of National Contest of Innovative Projects selected in Minsk

2017 Return back

A solemn ceremony of awarding winners and finalists of the National Contest of Innovative Projects was held at the Belarusian State Agrarian Technical University. This year it is held for the 8th time. ‘Every year the interest to the contest grows, the number of applications keeps increasing and the audience of the contest is expanded,’ Alexander Shumilin, Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technologies of the Republic of Belarus, said at the opening. According to him, in 2017, 178 applications were submitted for the contest. 70 projects of them were in the nomination "Best Innovative Project", and 108 projects were in the nomination "Best Youth Innovative Project". In total, 956 projects in both nominations were considered in 2010-2017.

Developers of projects from educational institutions, research institutes and centers of the National Academy of Sciences, enterprises, as well as authors' groups are among the contest participants. As in previous years, the largest number of projects are in the field of IT-technologies (21 projects, or 23.3% of the total).

At the same time, the number of projects in the field of medicine (17 projects against 5 projects) and agriculture (13 against 8) increased.

Alexander Shumilin also talked about the additional measures to attract young people to the National Contest of Innovative Projects. In particular, participants and winners of other national contests are given the opportunity to develop business plans and further commercialize the best innovative projects by obtaining a certificate. By the way, all certificates to the amount of 11,920  rubles, issued for projects selected in 2016, were successfully mastered. The following projects are among them:

- an innovative wound healing bandage with chitosan nano fibrae, the created prototypes of which have no analogues in the Republic of Belarus (the author is Vladimir Melamed, Grodno State Medical University);

- wireless automatic control system for heating in the premises of "A +", the introduction of which, first of all in medical and preventive institutions and sanatoriums, will significantly reduce heating costs (up to 40%) (the author is ALC "TahatAksi");

- cocktails based on sprouted grain with fruit and berry fillers, providing up to 60% of the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals by consuming only 400 g of drink (the authors are Elena Urbanchik and Oksana Stanulenis, Scientific and Technological Center "Technostart" of the Institute of Training and Retraining of Staff of Mogilev State University of Food).

The following projects are among the youth ones that received funds for commercialization:

- an educational project "Science for Children", which reached the finals of the contest "My Business" this year. This resulted in the partner agreements concluded with Zubr Capital Management Company and a new strategy developed for monetizing the resource (the author is Alexander Rubanov);

- a project “System of Statistical Analysis in Football Activity “StatPro”, which was approved by the coaches of the amateur football team “Ivatsevichi” (the result of implementation is recognition of the team as silver medalists of the National Championship by fans for the second year running) and the coaches of the football club of the 2nd league championship of the Republic on football “Yuas Mikashevichi” (the result is the team's pass in the 1st league in 2017) (the author is Aleksey Saskevich).

This year, 8 projects were awarded certificates for commercialization, which indicates an increased level of preparation of projects for participation in the contest.
