Constitution Day of the Republic of Poland

Organization, 03 May 2022

Today, the Republic of Poland, a JINR Member State, celebrates Constitution Day. In the national calendar, this date commemorates 3 May 1791, the declaration day of the first constitution in modern Europe adopted in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.

As of the beginning of 2022, more than 20 scientific centres and universities of Poland cooperate with the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research on 31 topics of the JINR Topical Plan in the fields of theoretical physics, elementary particle physics, nuclear physics, condensed matter physics, radiation and radiobiological research, computing and computational physics, as well as the educational programme of the Institute.

The National Centre for Nuclear Research in Poland (NCBJ) has organised a platform for virtual seminars dedicated to the research on superheavy nuclei (SHE). JINR speakers along with scientists from more than a dozen countries of the world regularly deliver their reports at these seminars.

Both JINR and Polish scientific organisations have hosted a number of large scientific meetings on their platforms. The 27th Nuclear Physics Workshop in Lublin in October 2021 was among them. It is noteworthy that RAS Academician Yuri Oganessian received the Honoris Causa Doctorate title of the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University at that meeting.

The visit of Ambassadors Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Czech Republic, the Republic of Poland, and the Republic of Slovakia to Dubna was also remarkable for 2021. They arrived in Dubna in September as part of the celebration of the 65th JINR anniversary.

Employees of the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences have contributed to the creation of the Baikal-GVD neutrino telescope. Polish researchers are members of the User Committee of the IBR-2 neutron source.

The Directorate of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research congratulates Polish colleagues and partners, as well as their relatives, on the National Third of May Day and wishes them good health, happiness, well-being, luck, and new professional successes for the benefit of science and progress.
