Mongolia

General information on collaboration

Mongolia has been a JINR Member State since its foundation. Academician N. Sodnom was the first Plenipotentiary Representative of Mongolia at JINR who signed the Charter of JINR. He was then repeatedly appointed as Plenipotentiary Representative and elected as JINR Vice-Director, moreover, he was President of the Academy of Sciences of Mongolia and Rector of the Mongolian State University. He has maintained close ties with JINR in these positions. Many other Mongolian scientists and science organisers have made a significant contribution to JINR development including professor D. Tsavagmid, academicians B. Chadraa, S. Enhbat and T. Galbaatar, professors D. Chultem, O. Otgonsuren, D. Tuvdendorge, B. Dalhsuren and Sh. Garbish.

Many young Mongolian physicists contributed to the internationally acclaimed projects carried out by the Institute’s international teams during the 50-year history of JINR. Mongolian experts who studied at JINR became leading scientists, professors, academicians, state prize winners and directors of research institutions. Today, they are leaders of science development in Mongolia and are very interested in Dubna to keep being the modern physics school for young specialists of the country.

Mongolian scientists continue to successfully work in JINR laboratories: on 1 November 2013, 12 Mongolian experts worked full-time at JINR, including 2 Candidates and 1 Doctor of Sciences. Every year 15 Mongolian scientists and experts come to the Institute on short-term business trips to participate in joint projects and to attend JINR conferences, and approximately the same number of JINR researchers go to Mongolia.

The Nuclear Energy Agency of Mongolia, the Mongolian State University with the Centre for Nuclear Research and the Academy of Sciences of Mongolia with the Institute of Physics and Technology are traditional partners of JINR. Collaboration continues on a range of subjects in all fields of JINR activities, including the educational programme. Contacts between Mongolia and the European Organisation of Nuclear Research are enabled through JINR: many experts take part in the ALICE project.

Due to the launch of the national Mongolian programme on development of nuclear power and industrial development of uranium sources, JINR will play a significant role in helping Mongolian colleagues in both carrying out work in the frames of this programme and in training highly-skilled experts.

He graduated in 1976 with a degree in physics. He worked at Joint Institute of Nuclear Research in 1979-1986. Then in 1985, he defended his PhD thesis in JINR. He worked as a lecturer in 1986-1989. In 1989-1992 he was a director of studies, in 1992-2008 he was a first pro-rector and in 2009-2010 – rector of MonSU. He has been a director of the Centre of Nuclear Research of MonSU since 1997. Since 2016, he is Scientific Secretary of the Nuclear Research Center at the Mongolian State University.

Major scientific achievements

His main scientific projects are on the research of nuclei decay of lanthanides by nuclear orientation method. Spins of dozens level of the daughter nuclei and parameters of multipolarity mixing for cell transitions were identified unambiguously by measuring anisotropy of angular gamma-ray distribution between daughter nuclei levels.

Energy and Level structure of rotation bands and transient probabilities between these nuclei levels were calculated under the semi-microscopic quasi-partial phonon model for odd ytterbium nuclei, and a comparison with experimental data was also done.

Over the last years, Suran Davaa worked on the using of atomic power in Mongolia. He significantly contributed to the system change of the Higher education of Mongolia.

Suren Davaa about JINR:
JINR significantly contributes not only to the world science but also to electronics and accelerative and reactor technics development and to other high technologies. A range of generations of professional personnel from member states grew up in JINR.

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.

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.
