A new bill on science are going to introduce to the State Duma in 2019, the currently formed road map, said state Secretary, Deputy Minister of science and higher education Marina Lukashevich.

«Currently, we create a roadmap for the development of the bill on science. We definitely plan to make in 2019 in the state Duma», — said Lukashevich at a meeting of the Committee on education and science in the state Duma.

According to her, the work will be done by the Committee together with Academy of Sciences.

The current law on science and state scientific-technical policy was adopted in 1996. It regulates relations between subjects of scientific and scientific-technical activities, state authorities and consumers of scientific and scientific-technical products (works and services), including for the provision of state support of innovation activities. Experts have repeatedly pointed out that this law is no longer consistent with the strategic objectives for the development of science and technologies in Russia. Thus, we started work on a new Federal law on science.
