The Republican Unitary Enterprise « Scientific and practical centre of the National Academy of sciences of Belarus of agriculture mechanization» was created in November 1947 as the Institute for Agriculture Mechanization of the Academy of Sciences of BSSR. In 2006 « Institute for Agriculture Mechanization of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus» Republican Unitary Research Enterprise was reorganized into « Scientific and Practical Centre of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus for Agriculture Mechanization» RUE by joining to it « Institute of Power Engineering of Agro-industrial Complex of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus» Republican Unitary Enterprise and « Special Engineering and Design Bureau for Agriculture Mechanization of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus» Republican Unitary Enterprise.
The Centre is the founder of the following daughter enterprises:
· « Experimental Department « Zazerie» Republican Agricultural Daughter Enterprise of « Scientific and Practical Centre of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus for Agriculture Mechanization» Republican Unitary Enterprise (Zazerie Village, Puk-hovichi District, Minsk Region);
· « Experimental Factory» Republican Production Daughter Enterprise of « Scientific and Practical Centre of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus for Agriculture Mechanization» Republican Unitary Enterprise (Minsk City).
