General information on collaboration

The history of Georgian scientists in JINR activity starts with the foundation of Dubna International Scientific Centre. Albert N. Tavhelidze (1930-2010), academician in future, president of the Academy of Sciences of Georgia, became a research scientist of Laboratory of Theoretical Physics in 1956. A.N.Tavkhelidze is that person who laid the ground works and then prioritised and evaluated the activity of many Georgian scientists participation in life of the International Institute. The process of a Georgian physicist new school formation in Dubna and a formation of theoreticians and experimentalists, who significantly contributed to numerous JINR scientific programmes, starts just from then on. Their researches are honoured with State awards, and the world scientific society highly appreciated their merits. The prominent representatives of this school continues working today not only in Dubna, but also at many laboratories of the world.

Experts from leading Georgian institutes developed and did collaborative experiments on JINR basic laboratory facilities after many years of cooperation. Theoretical projects in nuclear physics field and elementary particle fundamental interaction physics were also done then. The new stage of Georgia-JINR collaboration has started since 1992, when Georgia became a self-sustained state and a JINR member state after important historical changes. Academician Nodar S. Amaglobeli (1930-2004), physicist-experimentalist, became the first JINR Plenipotentiary representative of the government of Georgia. He started his scientific way with postgraduate course in Dubna, then he became a participant and organiser of many huge scientific experiments done in the Institute together with Georgian experts.

Today theoretical and experimental physics of high energy, computing and computational physics are top research areas of Georgian experts. The Georgian scientists work at the basic JINR facilities and participate in widely represented international JINR projects.

At present JINR collaborates and keeps in touch with research institutes of Georgia on 10 themes of a Topic-based kind. 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 are among those institutes.

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

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.
