In 1972 in Armenian Agricultural and Yerevan Zoo Veterinary Institutes scientific-research sectors used to be operating, which had one common aim to coordinate and organize scientific works and papers. In the scientific sector of Agricultural Institute of Armenia as heads of department used to work A.J. Aghasaryan, N.A.Azatyan, S.O.Kalachyan, A.V.Shogheryan, and in Yerevan Zoo Veterinary Institute – Yu.H.Abovyan, G.B.Serobyan, H.S.Melikyan, E.S.Aslanyan.
  According to the new form of the RA State Budget financing Administration of Science was formed in the newly established AAA. Till its reformation it was used to be headed by A.A.Aghababyan, and untill October 2018 the Scientific Center was headed by the doctor of technical sciences, professor D. Petrosyan. From then doctor of Economic Sciences, professor H. Tspnetsyan was appointed as a Vice-Rector for Scientific Affairs at ANAU.
The main directions of the Department of Science activity are:

  • organization and analyze of scientific works implemented in scientific subdivisions and chairs of university
  • information assurance of university’s scientific activity
  • strengthening communication between science and industry
  • coordination of inventory and innovative activity
  • organization of PhD, master and bachelor students’ scientific-research activity
  • assurance of scientific-educational processes unity

Structural subdivisions of scientific sphere are: Department of Science, Branches - “Scientific Center of Soil Science, Agrochemistry and Melioration after H.Petrosyan”, “Scientific Center of Viticulture and Viniculture”, “Scientific Center of Agrobiotechnology”, Scientific Research Institute of Agriculture Mechanization, Electrification and Automobile Transportation , Scientific Research Institute of Food Technology, Food Security and Biotechnology, Research Center of Agrarian Policy and Economics, the 5 problem laboratories: Plants’ Protection and Pesticides Synthesis, Plants’ Genofond and Selection , Ecology and Organic Agriculture, Agricultural Animals’ Selection, Genetics and Feeding, Veterinary and Veterinary Sanitary Expertise, Department of Postgraduate Studies, Licensing and Standardization Sector.
