Establishment history

On April 14, 1972 Sheki Regional Scientific Base (SRSB) has been created under the Physics institute of the academy according to the decision dated of the Presidium of Azerbaijan SSR Academy of Sciences.   The purpose of this enterprise was increasing the efficiency of using advanced achievements of science in the production for further development of industry and agriculture of the Sheki-Zagatala economic region. Afterwards,   some proper groups were created in this Scientific Base: for example "Geology", "Gene fund", "Biochemistry" and "Biophysics".

In accordance with the decision of Presidium of the Academy of Sciences (16.04.1995, no. 13/1) Sheki Regional Scientific   Base was given the status of Sheki Regional Scientific Centre. By this decision, five research groups of Scientific Centre have become laboratories and 2 new laboratories of "Learning of the Streams" and "Folklore and Folk Arts" were created and the number of the laboratories were supplied to 7.

In 2014, some structure changes have been implemented inSheki Regional Scientific Centre according to the new regulations of the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences,  ShRSC scientific investigation departments and basic directions of scientific investigations are: . Department of  “Landscape”, “Environmental geography”, “Biochemistry of plants”, “Mulberry silkworm selection”, “Molecular biophysics”,  “Genefund and biodiversity”“Folklore and crafts”,“Historical heritage and ethnography”.

At present, nearly 95 scientific and technical employees work in ShRSC.  3 of them are doctors of sciences and 10 people are PhDs.  Two people completed the work on doctoral dissertation and   presented for discussion.  Overall, the last ten years PhD dissertation was defended by 3 people and 13 of 150 scientific papers have been published abroad. 18 international theses of 40 were published in abroad.
