The first issue discussed at the meeting was on March 27 – “Science Day”. Speaking on the topic, academician Arif Hashimov said that on April 9, 2018, the date of the establishment of the Azerbaijan Academy of Sciences on March 27 was defined as the professional holiday of those engaged in scientific activities in the republic-the “Science Day”. According to the academician, the establishment of the “Science Day” is a manifestation of President Ilham Aliyev's exceptional care for science and his high value to the Azerbaijani scientist.

“The Academy of Sciences, established in March 1945, has done special services in the formation of the intellectual potential of the Azerbaijani people, in determining the strategic directions of science arising from the requirements of the era, in the development of fundamental and Applied Science. National leader Heydar Aliyev called the Academy “National wealth of the Azerbaijani people”. Such a high value is due to the fact that the spiritual and intellectual energy emitted by this science temple for decades stimulated our national culture as a whole. The formation of the modern culture of Azerbaijan, the ideology of national statehood and azerbaijanism, the cultivation of the national intellectual elite have been possible in recent decades as a result of the activity of the Academy. In particular, the prestigious scientific schools established in Azerbaijan in the 70-80s of the last century gave impetus to the development of scientific processes not only on the scale of the former USSR, but also on a global scale. Currently, on the one hand, in accordance with the global challenges caused by the new realities of the world, on the other hand, in accordance with the new realities in the region and the country after the historic victory of Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan science, its main leading center, ANAS, continues its development. The Academy's goal in the near future is to take an active part in the implementation of the state policy determined by President Ilham Aliyev and aimed at the comprehensive development of the country”, said Arif Hashimov.

After discussions, the Presidium of ANAS, taking into account the importance of scientific activity in terms of strengthening the authority in society, popularization of science, evaluation of scientists work, their promotion to new scientific achievements and successes, approved the action plan dedicated to the “Science Day” of ANAS.
