YEREVAN. – Armenia’s Education and Science Minister Armen Ashotyan met with members of the Young Scientists’ Council, to which the Government had allocated AMD 100 million (approx. US$ 258,660) as additional support.
They discussed the Council’s work method, and the young scientists informed about their certain disagreement with this method.
