General information on collaboration

Georgian scientists have been actively involved in the work of JINR since the founding of Dubna International Scientific Centre. Albert N. Tavhelidze (1930-2010), future academician amd president of the Academy of Sciences of Georgia, became a research scientist at the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics in 1956. A.N.Tavkhelidze is the one who laid groundwork for many research areas, supervised and evaluated work of many Georgian scientists at the International Institute. It was then that the Georgian physicist school started to take form in Dubna. The school supported development of theoreticians and experimentalists who have since made a marked contribution to many scientific projects at JINR. This work has been honored with state awards, and was highly evaluated by international scientific community. Researchers from this school work today in Dubna, as well as in various laboratories around the world.

Over the years, experts from leading Georgian institutes have developed and conducted numerous joint experiments at JINR facilities. These include theoretical projects in nuclear physics, and in elementary particle fundamental interaction physics. A new stage of collaboration between Georgia and JINR began in 1992, when Georgia gained independence and became a JINR member-state. Academician Nodar S. Amaglobeli (1930-2004), a physicist-experimentalist, became the first Plenipotentiary representative of the government of Georgia at JINR. He started his scientific career as a postgraduate researcher in Dubna, where he later participated in, and organized major scientific experiments, while working closely with Georgian experts.

Today major research areas of Georgian experts are theoretical and experimental physics of high energy, and computational physics. Georgian scientists work at JINR facilities, and participate in international JINR projects that have received international acclaim.

Currently JINR collaborates and regularly communicates with research institutes of Georgia in 10 research areas, on a per project basis. These institutes include Research Institute of Physics of High Energy, Razmadze Mathematics Institute, Andronikashvili Physics Institute of Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, Cybernetics Institute of Technical University of Georgia, and Georgia University.

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.

  • Zvidat Tsamalaidze
    Head of the national group of Georgia, Senior Scientific Researcher of the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems

  • +7 (49621) 6-39-08

  • zviadi@nusun.jinr.ru

Being in constant contact with plenipotentiaries, embassies of member-states, JINR’s directorate and management services, they take part in the solution of the problems connected with the stay 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 meets periodically. The representatives of the Directorate and the services of the Institute are invited to its meetings. The agenda includes the discussion of the 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 member-states, their people and culture.
