Republic of Azerbaijan

General information on collaboration

The Republic of Azerbaijan, as part of the USSR, joined JINR having signed the agreement on 26 March 1956. As a sovereign republic, Azerbaijan has been a JINR Member State since 1992. However, national science centers and scientists in Azerbaijan have collaborated with JINR throughout its history.

21 specialists from Azerbaijan and members of their families are currently working at JINR, though most collaborating scientists conduct their research at institutes in Azerbaijan applying methods developed at JINR and travelling to Dubna when required.

Scientific cooperation of physicists from Azerbaijan and JINR scientists continues to evolve, and gives an opportunity to Azerbaijani scientists to develop contacts with major accelerator centers around the world.

Subject areas of all the JINR Laboratories attract Azerbaikanu scientists. They annually expand the area of their scientific interests, the number of projects and experiments, including international ones, they take an active part in is growing. It should be highlighted that the interaction between JINR and Azerbaijani scientific organizations is permanently enhancing from year to year. Several bilateral memorandums have been signed between JINR and Baku State University for the last several years. This is an additional impetus for the full-fledged development of the cooepration between JINR and the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The following international projects represent two of the seven topics on which collaboration is focused:

National groups

The languages of international communication at JINR are Russian and English. However, one can hear the speech in many languages in Dubna, including the languages of JINR Member States when the countrymen, the representatives of the same expatriates’ community (the national groups of JINR), meet each other.

Over the years of existence of JINR the national groups have developed their traditions, forms of cooperation and collaboration with other national groups. Their leaders, appointed by the plenipotentiaries of the JINR Member States play an organizing role in the life of national groups.

  • Nazim Huseynov
    Head of the national group of Azerbaijan, DLNP JINR senior researcher

  • +7 (496) 216-23-92

  • nguseynov@jinr.ru

Being in constant contact with plenipotentiaries, embassies of the Member States, the JINR Directorate and management services, national groups take part in the solution of the problems connected with the staying of their colleagues-countrymen and their families in Russia, with the organization of their life and leisure.

The Council of the leaders of the national groups has regular meetings. The representatives of the Directorate and the services of the Institute are invited to these meetings. The agenda includes discussion of urgent problems of the collaborators from the Member States. Due to this, the Directorate is able to make adequate decisions in time.

On the occasions of major public holidays of the Member States, the national groups arrange receptions. These festive events are held accompanied by art exhibitions, photo exhibitions, and enrich JINR staff members’ knowledge about the JINR Member States, their people and culture.

JINR staff members are celebrating the Day of the Republic of Azerbaijan
 
On the initiative of the Azerbaijani, Kazakh and Uzbek national groups the annual spring festival “Novruz Bairam” with its oriental flair is celebrated at JINR. Of course, it can not do without the traditional pilaf
