Director Albert Sargsyan’s Welcome Speech
      
   The National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia /NAS RA/ is a higher scientific institution, which consists of 38 research organizations and centers, including International Scientific - Educational Center /ISEC/.
    The International Scientific-Educational Center of NAS RA was founded in 1997 on the basis of PhD studies operating at Academy Presidium. ISEC's main objective is to prepare scientific brainpower, which is implemented through PhD Studies and Postdoctoral Studies, where NAS research organizations and centers serve as a basis.

    In 2004 the International Scientific-Educational Center of NAS RA also offered programs for master’s degree aiming to facilitate the transition from education to science. 
    Implementing master’s programme in the system of Academy was not only highly needed, but also very important for the use of rich scientific potential, preparing highly qualified staff and then recruiting research organization with highly qualified staff.
    The best scientists, academicians, correspondent members, PhDs and Doctors teach at Master Studies, while research is carried out in the appropriate research organization, which enables higher education to become flexible and orient to contemporary tasks, to make professional basis deeper.

Master Studies has been founded quite recently, but it can surely be said ISEC is an established institution playing an essential role in the activities of NAS RA.
