Following the steady decline in funding for scientific cooperation between the U.S. and Uzbekistan, CSTSP initiated a project in 2011 with the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan (ASU) to identify possible areas of future scientific cooperation. An initial meeting was held in Tashkent in 2012 and resulted in the identification of several near- and longer-term opportunities for future cooperation. CSTSP is planning a second meeting with ASU in May 2013 to further explore some of these opportunities.
Future Opportunities for U.S.-Uzbekistan Cooperation in the Life Sciences
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan held a meeting on Future Opportunities for U.S.-Uzbekistan Cooperation in the Life Sciences in September 2012. The meeting focused on broad disciplinary areas within the environmental, agricultural, and human health sciences.
The workshop included scientific presentations from Uzbek scientists and their U.S. counterparts, and interactive discussion among all participants to identify potential collaborative areas of mutual interest and benefit. Past achievements and on-going programs that were highlighted during the workshop prompted participants' eagerness to pursue collaborative opportunities identified during the discussions.Download Publication
