The educational and scientific-production republican enterprise Unitechprom of BSU was given the status of an innovation infrastructure entity, a scientific and technological park at the meeting of the board of the State Committee on Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus (taking into account the results of the voting of the members of the expert commission). At present, the network of the innovation infrastructure entities covers all the regions of Belarus and consists of 20 organizations: 11 science and technology parks and 9 technology transfer centers, and the status of the innovation infrastructure entity was given to the Belarusian Innovative Foundation.

It should be noted that the number of jobs and the volume of production of innovative products in organizations-residents of technological parks have more than doubled in the country over the past five years. According to experts, entities of innovation infrastructure with high-tech industries are the most important points of the economic growth. At the same time, the most important factor of their development is the provision of the state support. To improve the conditions for the establishment and operation of technology parks, technology transfer centers, the SCST initiated the introduction of amendments on the creation and operation of innovation infrastructure entities to some decrees of the President of the Republic of Belarus. The adoption of a number of measures will increase the efficiency of the functioning of technology parks and create conditions for their development as sites for the organization of high-tech industries and business incubation of micro and small innovative organizations.
