JINR extends its participation in NAUKA 0+ Festival

Education, 21 September 2020

XV All-Russian Festival of Science “NAUKA 0+” opens up its virtual doors at one of the central regional sites of this year – in the Samara region. JINR will be an official representative of a thematic week “Nuclear Physics” in the frames of which the Institute will hold a series of science popular online events.

Physics will unite all thematic areas of the Festival’s events in the Samara region and throughout Russia, as far as the main theme of the “NAUKA 0+” Festival of this year is “Physics of the future” in connection with the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the nuclear industry in Russia.

The Institute traditionally participates in the largest science popular Festival “NAUKA 0+” at the main venues in Moscow. This year, the Samara region became one of the central regional sites of the Festival and invited JINR to hold a series of interactive educational events in the Samara region dedicated to physics. Thus, the Institute will considerably extend its participation in the largest science popular project.

It should be noted that the basic university of the Festival’s regional site is Samara National Research University named after Academician S. P. Korolev. It is a long-standing partner of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna. Since 2015, Samara University and JINR have conducted research in two fields: physics of fundamental interactions and condensed matter theory. Moreover, joint aims are embedded in the Festival’s tasks, namely to attract to science as many young people as possible, to foster interest in research through interactive involvement into the scientific process, to establish a dialogue between science and society.

The planned events of the thematic week “Nuclear Physics”, which will be held by JINR researchers from 21 to 25 September, will correspond to these goals.

We invite you to get acquainted with large-scale scientific tasks and future experiments at the NICA collider in an interactive online format, to learn about research in the fields of nuclear physics and particle physics, to take part in an online competition on nuclear studies and much more!

The Festival will be broadcast on VKontakte:
