On 25 March, a festive meeting was held in the JINR Scientists’ Club dedicated to the Foundation Day of the Joint Institute. Participants summed up the results of the previous, jubilee year of JINR. Governmental and industrial awards were presented to Institute’s employees, and grants for Dubna teachers were awarded.

Director of the Joint Institute RAS Academician Grigory Trubnikov in his welcoming speech noted that the Institute worked effectively in the past year. “JINR is full of energy and plans. We have achieved a lot during the anniversary year. On the JINR Foundation Day, the Institute’s Directorate expresses gratitude to the JINR team, as well as hundreds of partners worldwide, for their contribution to the development of the bright scientific centre, our common International Home on the Volga,” Grigory Trubnikov said.

Head of Dubna Sergey Kulikov congratulated the Joint Institute on the 66th anniversary, “The Institute and Dubna are inextricably linked. JINR has not only great past but also fascinating future. The organisation is actively developing.”

Following the tradition, on the Day of JINR talented teachers of Dubna – winners of the JINR Grant Competition for teachers of the city – were honored. In the festive atmosphere of the event, JINR Director Grigory Trubnikov and Head of Dubna Sergey Kulikov presented awards to Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, IT, Biology, English and Russian teachers, as well as to teachers of additional education. When considering the applications, the jury focused on the subjects and educational technologies that are necessary for training future JINR staff. For 22 years of the competition’s existence, 210 teachers have already received awards. This year, the JINR Directorate has decided to increase the number of grants from 10 to 12.

“It is an honour for JINR to organise this competition and thus express the Institute’s gratitude to teachers for their labour, patience, and kindness,” Grigory Trubnikov said.
