Deputy Prime Minister: COBRAIN Program will introduce best  international experience in Armenia

ArmInfo. The "Neuroscience for Healthy Brain Aging - COBRAIN" program of the Center for Translation Studies of Chronic Neurodegenerative Diseases of Armenia  will allow for closer cooperation with European universities and  research centers and introduce the best international experience in  Armenia. Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan said this at  the first meeting of the COBRAIN program participants.

"The English philosopher Francis Bacon said that knowledge is power,  and this key idea should play the role of a guiding compass for every  country that looks to the future and follows the path of success.  Today it is more than relevant. It is important that we make the best  use of the opportunities of EU program "Horizon 2020". For us, the  development path of universities as research and educational centers  of excellence is also important. I am sure that COBRAIN will serve  precisely this purpose, contributing not only to neurogenization, but  also to the development of research skills and abilities of graduates  of Yerevan State Medical University, "Avinyan said, the government  press service informs.

According to the Deputy Prime Minister, the COBRAIN program will  ensure closer cooperation with leading European universities and  research centers and introduce the best international experience in  Armenia. "One of the priorities of the Armenian government is  high-quality human capital, which is a precondition for inclusive  economic development. I hope that thanks to the implementation of the  COBRAIN program, Armenian doctors working abroad will express a  desire to return to their homeland and develop medicine in Armenia.  90% of brain diseases today are incurable, and this has become a  challenge for the whole world, including for Armenia, which is why  this program aimed at developing neurosurgery is of strategic  importance for our country, " Deputy Prime Minister stressed.

It should be noted that in 2019, Armenia, being represented by  Yerevan Medical University named after Mkhitar Heratsi was first  recognized as the winner of the HORIZON 2020 Twinning program.
