Our main goal is to present scientific information to the audience, ordinary people in an interesting way, as well as to introduce the prominent scientists and personalities of Azerbaijan to the world.”
Speaking about the presentation of the brochure " Prominent Azerbaijani Scholars ", I. Shahbazov said that the information has been collected in the brochure about Azerbaijani scholars and cultural figures who made significant contributions to world science and culture. He noted that the brochure is prepared for several purposes: “We want to introduce our compatriots who made contribution to world science. Unfortunately, society is not well-aware of them. We considered that we can provide information about those individuals collecting in a brochure. In addition, there is not full information on the Internet about most of those scholars. We thought that this brochure would be a tool for people to look for information. On the other hand, the purpose of this brochure is to motivate teachers and students. We think that the more we get to know the accomplishments of our prominent people, the greater will be the desire of people involved in scientific creativity.”
