Slovak Republic

General information on collaboration

Slovakia (earlier as part of CSR, and since 1993 as a self-sustained State) has taken part in JINR activity since its foundation. Today the Slovak Republic according its amount of work is one of the leading JINR member states. 13 scientific, scientific and technical organisations keep in touch with JINR.

Slovak scientific centres – I.A. Komenski Institute of Physics SAS, Slovak technical University in Bratislava and P.I. Šafárik University in Kosice – are old JINR partners. Collaborative works are held today with the scientific organisations, and good business relations with it are maintained. In close collaboration with JINR Slovakia prepares its experimental base. Cyclotron of heavy ions with energy of 72 MeV (DC-72) was developed and made by Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions for Cyclotron Centre in Bratislava. Assistance in radioisotope derivatization technology development is provided. It is used in nuclear medicine; in creation of the laboratory of polymer materials modification on base this accelerator. Slovak experts from Bratislava Komenski University, in their turn, take part in development and creation of complex prototype for radiotherapy on heavy ion beams of Nuclotron-M LPHE under the supervision of leading scientists as S. Dubnička, Plenipotentiary representative of the Government of Slovakia and I. Ružička , Member of the JINR Scientific Council.

Slovakia take part in educational programme – the group of Slovak students went to FLNP to practice the skills in work with accelerators.

Smolenice, Stará Lesná and Štrbské pleso are small Slovak towns; they are well-known to many JINR employees as a lot of JINR conferences on fission physics, relativistic nuclear physics and many international conferences on hadron structure and other international events took place here with attendance of JINR substantial delegation of scientists. The JINR CERN physics school (VII European Physics School of High Energy) was held in Slovakia.

Regular international conference on Relativistic nuclear physics from hundreds of MeV to TeV was run in Stará Lesná in 2009. It was prepared by JINR together with Slovak partners. Another collective event took place the same year in Bratislava – V International School of Nuclear Physical Methods of Radiobiology and Medicine.

Annually theoretical physicists of Dubna tale part in a small trilateral conference on theoretical physics in Slovakia. Year 2010 was not an exception.

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.

  • Luboš Krupa
    Vice-president of the national group of the Slovak Republic, senior LNR research scientist

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.

National Holidays
  • Day of Creation of the Republic of Slovakia – 1 January;
  • St. Kirill’s and St. Methodius Day – 5 July;
  • Day of Slovak National Uprising – 29 August;
  • Day of Constitution of the Slovak Republic – 1 September;
  • Day of Fight for Freedom and Democracy – 17 November.
