Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan and its manuscript fund, which consists of more than 25.6 thousand manuscript volumes. The Foundation is recognized as one of the world's richest repositories of Oriental manuscripts and is included in the UNESCO world cultural heritage list. A collection of «Treasury of Oriental manuscripts» has been published in three languages related to the fund. Uzbekistan creates conditions and opportunities for young scientists not only of our country, but also for foreign scholars in order to conduct in-depth research on Islamic studies, which will help to make a true interpretation of the Islam and improve the effectiveness of countering radicalism, extremism and terrorism. In particular, the Center of Islamic civilization within the complex of Hazrati Imam is being built, a motto of which is «Education is the antidote to ignorance». The center will consist of an academy, a library, an archive and a manuscript fund. All of them will be replenished with ancient manuscripts stored in the country and abroad (lithographic books, historical documents, antiquities relating to scientific and religious schools founded by scholars and religious spokesmen who were born in the territory of modern Uzbekistan) as well as research works about Islam religion. This center should be our face in the sphere of propaganda of true Islam. Fifthly, holding in Uzbekistan international Olympiad of young mathematicians, dedicated to the memory of mediaeval Uzbek greatest mathematician Al- Khwarizmi (783-850). It is known that Khorezmi was originally from Khiva (current city of Khorezm province). His works, especially a brief book on the calculus «Kitab al-Jabr wal-Muqabala», were of great importance in the development of mathematics. Currently, the youth of Uzbekistan shows excellent results at the international competitions in mathematics. In particular, last year in Bulgaria Ubay Yakhyaev a 11-year-old prodigy from Uzbekistan was awarded a gold medal of the international Olympiad «Mathematics without borders – 2017». On 28-30 October 2018, in accordance with the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated August 26, 2018, the first international math Olympiad dedicated to the memory of Al-Khorezm took place in Urgench. About 230 students from 56 universities of more than 20 countries attended it. As a result, Beijing University (China) took the first place in the team competition in terms of the number of medals won, the second place was occupied by the national University of Uzbekistan, at the third rank was Tartu University (Estonia). Representatives of 30 world universities received medals of various degrees. The next second international math Olympiad dedicated to the memory of Al-Khwarizmi will be held in the third week of October of 2020. Undoubtedly, the organization of such events will enhance the potential of the youth and the state image not only of our country but also of other OIC member states. Additionally, Sh.Mirziyoyev proposed to arrange integrated cooperation of science and education and industry, to establish a special OIC award for scientific advances in the Islamic world as well as to host the next OIC summit on science and technology for 2020 in Uzbekistan. To implement Sh.Mirziyoyev’s initiatives, announced at the First OIC summit on science and technology, the delegation of OIC Ministerial Standing Committee on Scientific and Technological Cooperation (COMSTECH), headed by the General coordinator of the Standing Committee Sh.Khan paid a visit to Uzbekistan in March of 2018. During the visit a «Road map» on cooperation between Uzbekistan and COMSTEC for the period 2018-2020 was signed. The «Road map» implies cooperation on 1) installation of a super-modern telescope in Samarkand; preservation, cataloguing and studying manuscripts stored in Uzbekistan; 2) development of joint scientific and innovative projects on alternative energy sources and information 80
