Republic of Moldova

General information on collaboration

The Republic of Moldova joined JINR since its foundation according to the Agreement signed on 26 March 1956. As a sovereign republic, Moldova has been a JINR Member State since 1992.

The Republic of Moldova, along with other JINR Member States, takes an active part in research projects of the Institute. These scientific research and developments are carried out in accordance with the Topical Plan for JINR research and international cooperation.

At present, 4 specialists from Moldova work at JINR appointed by Plenipotentiary Representative of Moldova, though most collaborating scientists conduct their research at institutes in Moldova, applying techniques and developments of JINR, and travelling to Dubna when required.

The Laboratory of Theoretical Physics has a long history of successful cooperation with a team of Professor K.K. Gudima from the Institute of Applied Physics of MAS. In the late 1960s, K.K. Gudima worked at BLTP. In 1969, he defended his Candidate’s thesis in Dubna and has always been in contact with JINR in the following years. A.S. Parvan, his student, is now a researcher at the Laboratory. A large amount of scientific work has been performed for the last 5-6 years which resulted in numerous publications and reports at international conferences.

Cooperation with JINR has allowed Moldova scientists to enhance their collaboration with international scientific centres and universities in other countries such as Germany, Italy, and France.

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 the JINR existence, 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.

  • Alexandru Parvan
    Head of the national group of Moldova, Senior Scientific Researcher of BLTP JINR

  • +7 (49621) 6-31-74

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 organization of their life and leisure.

The Council of leaders of national groups holds regular meetings. The representatives of the Directorate and the offices of the Institute are invited to these meetings. The agenda includes discussion of urgent issues 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, 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.
