JINR Training Programme “JINR Expertise for Member States and Partner Countries” (JEMS)

International training programme for decision-makers in science and international scientific cooperation

JEMS – «JINR Expertise for Member States and Partner Countries»

Since 2016, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research has been actively implementing the training programme for administrative and scientific personnel from research and educational organisations of JINR member states, associated members, and partner countries.

The training programme includes meetings with the JINR Directorate, a tour of the four main research complexes of the Institute, establishment of professional contacts with project leaders, daily lectures at the Visit Centre, as well as a Dubna sightseeing excursion.

What is JEMS

JEMS is a training programme – “JINR Expertise for Member States and Partner Countries”, run by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna and targeted at administrators and managers of international projects in science and research in nuclear sciences and related disciplines.

JEMS trainings are held every 3-4 months. Working language – English. A Russian language training course is announced by a special notice.

The main objective of JEMS is to present JINR operating principles, research and educational programmes, user policies, as well as means and formats of participating in JINR activities. During 5 working days, participants are offered an exciting tour of JINR research infrastructure, presentations and review lectures delivered by top laboratory management and leading scientists, meetings and round-table discussions with JINR Directorate, as well as excursions around Dubna.

The following topics are milestones of a usual generic day-by-day JEMS Programme: Heavy Ion Physics and Accelerator Technologies; Neutron Applications and nano-world; Theory, Information, Education; Life Sciences on the Earth and Space; Neutrino.

Organizational Issues

Participants are expected to cover their travel to Moscow and hotel expenses in Dubna (USD 50.00 per night). JINR will organize and support a meeting of delegates at Moscow airports, transfer to/from Dubna for arrival and departure, catering in accordance with the programme.

Participants from the JINR Member States and Associate Member Countries are entitled to special financial conditions.

In order to apply please forward an official letter in the name of Dr. Richard Lednicky, Vice-Director of JINR, accompanied by brief CV of delegates to post@jinr.ru with c.c. to jems@jinr.ru (Attention: Ms. Yulia Polyakova, Programme Secretary) who will communicate with you concerning your travel details and other issues.
