Dean of YSU Faculty of History Edik Minasyan made an opening speech at the international conference.


In the first week of December, conferences dedicated to the Day of the Historian have always been organized at YSU and in particular at the Faculty of History. I would like to express my special thanks to all the representatives of the Student Scientific Society for organizing an international conference, as conferences are the platforms where the potential of young scientists and researchers is revealed.

It is commendable that our partners from other universities and research centers have also joined this important initiative. I should also mention that the best works will be published in university journals, which is important for every young researcher, " Edik Minasyan said.


SSS Chairman of YSU Faculty of History Tatev Hakobyan mentioned that such conferences have already become traditional at the Faculty of History. "This time we decided to organize an international conference instead of a republican one, and we were very happy when we received applications for participation in Armenian as well as foreign universities immediately after the announcement of the conference," she said.

The Congress brought together about 150 scholars-linguists, as well as representatives of related professions: psychologists, playwrights, directors, lawyers, historians, political scientists and politicians from Russia, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan (distant), Belarus, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Ukraine.

During the three-day congress, the participants discussed a number of issues related to language policy in the post-Soviet space.

Armenia, among the representatives of other scientific institutions, was represented by YSU Faculty of History Professor Hakob Harutyunyan and Assistant of the Faculty of Russian Philology Karina Hovhannisyan.

As a result of the International Congress, a collection has already been published, which includes the main theses of the speeches of Russian scholars and other specialists on the language situation in the CIS multilingual countries.

Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports Vahram Dumanyan, YSU Rector Hovhannes Hovhannisyan, Minister of Health Anahit Avanesyan, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Health and Social Affairs Narek Zeynalyan, representatives of universities  were present at the opening ceremony.

Before the start of the event, those present observed a minute of silence in memory of the victims of the 44-day war and the staff of the university who died during "Covid-19".

"The new center established at the Institute of Pharmacy has an important mission. The center will mainly carry out two functions: training of pharmacists-analysts in accordance with international standards and the scope of pharmaceutical production activities" said President of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia Ashot Saghyan.

Ashot Saghyan emphasized that the purpose of establishing the center is to train high-quality pharmacist-analyst specialists in the field of quality control and evaluation of medicines at YSU Institute of Pharmacy.


Vahram Dumanyan congratulated everyone on the opening of the center, noting that the Armenian government has supported and will continue to support the implementation of such programs.

In his speech, YSU Acting Rector Hovhannes Hovhannisyan thanked all those who had contributed to the opening of the center.


After the speeches, the participants of the event also visited the Scientific-Educational Center for Quality Control and Monitoring of Medicines, got acquainted with the laboratory.


As a result of the project, it is planned to create a biotechnology based on bacteria, which will contribute to the processing of mining waste, reducing their toxic impact on the environment.

"Our goal is to fully identify these bacteria, to study their metal resistance and mechanisms, as well as to understand how we can use them to restore a polluted environment," said head of the research group said Armine Margaryan.

The program aims to analyze the risks of diseases circulating among wild animals and humans, as well as the existence and prevalence of pathogens and their vectors (wild mammal species).


One of the 5 topics of YSU guaranteed by the Committee of Science is the following topic: "Development of Biosafety Capacities in Armenia: mammals as disease vectors", which aims to create maps of hotspots based on the risk index of congenital diseases, as well as to identify these mechanisms, which will contribute to the improvement of long-term infectious disease monitoring programs and control effectiveness.


Speaking to us, Astghik Ghazaryan, Associate Professor of the Department of Zoology at the Faculty of Biology, said that the emergence of infectious diseases due to both natural events and climate change poses a significant and growing risk for Armenia.

According to her, bad coordinated biological control and disease control strategies endanger human health in the region.

According to Astghik Ghazaryan, the importance of this program is that new approaches will be developed for the organization of epidemiological control of infections transmitted by mammals.
