General information on collaboration

The Republic of Ukraine, as a part of the USSR, joined JINR since it foundation according to the agreement signed on 26 March 1956.

The Republic of Ukraine, as a part of the USSR, joined JINR since it foundation according to the agreement signed on 26 March 1956. Ukraine has been a JINR member state since 1991. Boris V. Grinev was appointed to a representative of the Cabinet of Ukraine in the Plenipotentiary representative Committee of the JINR member state governments (according to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine as of 15 December 2010 №1158). At that moment he was a first vice-chairman of the Government Agency of Science, innovations and Ukraine informational support (Gosinformnauki).

According to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine as of 08.04.2015 №178, The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine is the main central executive body which is responsible for a discharge of duties from the Ukraine membership in JINR.

JINR is an associated member of the International Association of the Academy of Sciences headed by the President of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) of Ukraine academician B.E. Paton.

A cooperation between the Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (JASU) and JINR is developed actively. An agreement of the skill improvement of Ukrainian lecturers, student and postgraduate in natural science field schooling signed in 2011 was be an accompaniment of this. Currently, the cooperation is developed on the following:

  • Schools of science for pedagogical employees based on JINR. The school programme covers teacher attendance in seminars, lectures, scientific video-conferences in Dubna, laboratories-subdivision of the Institute; excursions at technical complexes of the Institute and video-conferences between CERN scientists and Ukrainian and Russian sides of member states, and also there are partnership and experience exchange;
  • Attendance of Ukrainian teachers and pupils in JINR forums. Meetings for the modern physics problems and techniques of the schooling, presentations of pupils with reports at mini-conferences;
  • Exchange of experience and of guidance papers, collaborative development of educational, teaching and programme materials for a support of academic activities;
  • Televised question and answer session between JINR and pupils (JASU members).

Bogoliubov Programme of theoretical physics was opened in 2011. As a part of this programme, lectures, practical studies and school-practices of physics of high energy annually take place here. This programme is focused on the realisation of collaborative research and academic projects between JINR and Ukrainian scientific institutions of fundamental fields of theoretical physics. The programme also promotes an academic mobility of young scientists, postgraduates and masters of Ukraine and JINR.

The cooperation between JINR and Physical department of the Shevchenko Kiev National University (KNU) develops actively. Collaborative researches of physics of condensed substance matters are done at the Frank Laboratories of the Neutron Physics (including an analysis of the structure and physical-chemical properties of actual nanosystems: magnetic liquids, surfactant solutions, fullerene solution, nanodiamond dispersions). A graduation practical training and further KNU postgraduate’s work in FLNP is organised together with the JINR scientific centre considering that area. As a part of the cooperation, 7 Ph.D. theses were defended, about 100 scientific works were published in peer-reviewed international editions.

The Bogoliubov Institute of Theoretical Physics NAS Ukraine in Kiev also cooperates with JINR. Academician Nikolai N. Bogoliubov was a founder and first director of this Institute. A specific character of the JINR cooperation with this Institute are defined by mutual scientific school – Bogoliubov school. There is a regular Bogolubov conference for “Problems of Theoretical and Mathematical Physics”. The collaborative works on development ITP (the head of organisation at the academic Ukrainian GRID structure) GRID-infrastructure are supported with the Plenipotentiary representative grant of the Government of Ukraine in JINR.

Over many years, the active cooperation with Ukraine develops in scintillation detector creation, which are developed in the Institute of Scintillation Materials (ISM) and in the Scientific-Technological Complex “the Institute of Single Crystals”. New materials (crystals and plastics which are used with success in experiments of particle physics and nuclear physics) are created at these institutes under the direction of famous Ukrainian scientists B.V. Grinev and B.P. Seminozhenko. In particular, scientists from Dubna, Ukraine, Slovakia, Italy and the USA made developments of detectors with reradiative fibers within collaborative scientific CDF project in the Fermi National accelerative laboratory (Fermilab, The USA). The ionizing-radiation detectors created on a base of Ukrainian scintillators were tested and installed in Fermilab, where its high quality was proved, by professor J.A. Budagov team from Dubna.

The important job was done as a part of OPERA experiment, where more than 20000 scintillator plates 7m in length were installed for the system of electronic interaction vertex indication. They were fabricated to a specific technology. All developments, production, tests and plate assembling were done together with the team of four scientists from JINR under the supervision of J.A Gornushkin and A.G Olshevski. The creation of this unique detector system enabled a serious creative and material JINR contribution to the international OPERA experiment on neutrino oscillations search.

The special plastics, which scintillation detectors were made up in Dubna and Paris from, were made also in Ukraine for NEMO neutrino experiment, and unique crystals developed and made in ISM are used today in an experiment on a decay of rare mesons at accelerator in Zurich (Switzerland). Essentially, Ukraine contributed to JINR not financially, but with unique new materials and technologies.

The cooperation between the Nuclear Physics and Energetics Detail NAS of Ukraine and JINR is widening. the Institute of Electro-physics and Radiation Technologies NAS of Ukraine with the Flerov Laboratory of the Nuclear Reactions and the Frank Laboratory of the Neutron Physics of JINR do collaborative works in radiation physics of solid state. The group of employees of the Institute of the Nuclear Research NAS of Ukraine makes theoretical calculations of diffraction hyperon interaction with nuclei for experiments done at the Veksler and Baldin Laboratory of High Energy Physics. Theoretical researches are done in cooperation with the National Scientific Centre “Kharkov Physical and Technical Institute” NAS of Ukraine. The researches are connected with experiments with the using of polarised beams and polarised targets of JINR high energy physics, and connected with the improvement works of these systems. The cooperation of JINR and KPTI in grid-technology was supported with two grants of RFBR-NAS of Ukraine:

  1. “Preparation of computing complexes LIT JINR (Dubna) and KPTI of distributed data analysis of CMS experiment (CERN) on grid-technology basis” – 08-07-90410-Ukraine (2008-2009). As a result of the project, all requisite conditions for distributed CMS experiment data analysis were created at computing complexes (Dubna) and at KPTI, that opens the door to full participation of Russian and Ukrainian physicists in CMS experiment on its active stage.
  2. “Development and support of grid-technology LIT JINR and KPTI for distributed CMS experiment data handling (CERN) during first two years of Large Hadron Collider” 10-07-90400-Ukraine (2010-2011) was accepted in 2010. The project’s aim is to provide a computing grid-structure of LIT JINR and KPTI in distributed CMS experiment data handling during first two years of LHC. This includes a reliability support and a support of work stability of computing complexes of LIT JINR and KPTI as WLCG elements and T2-sites elements of CMS experiment, development and modernisation of these complexes according to changing CMS collaboration requirements to computing organisation, and creation of data analysis algorithm and adjusting of concrete data analysis algorithms of this experiment for “new physics” experience purpose.

An activity of Ukrainian scientist in mega-science NICA project launch should be mentioned. The project “Complex NICA” is a world leader in research of heavy nuclei physics of high energy. More than 300 scientists from 70 institutes of 32 countries already take part in projects preparation.

The aim of this project is to do fundamental researches, which are unable to do at other world accelerative centres and focused, first of all, on superdense nuclear substance existed in the early evolution stage of the Universe and existed in neutron star bosoms; and focused on a wide range of innovation and applied work.

Foreign experts during experiments within NICA will take opportunities which Ukraine provides: There are in Ukraine experts who have an experience in numerous projects of high energy physics that were done within international collaborations in Switzerland, Germany, Japan and other countries over the last years.

Ukraine also has technological capabilities that are carried out raised to concrete production patterns. They are going to be in demand during experiments within NICA. This unique base exists only in Ukraine and give a great advantage to Ukrainian scientists. The Ukrainian industry delivers detectors on plastic scintillators basis, microcables used in Large Hadron Collider in CERN.

The participation in NICA allows Ukraine to rebirth and widen fragments of the microelectronic base that early existed in Ukraine, and to promote the change of the educational system of Ukraine with experts training which level of knowledge matched with the world one.

Annually, as a part of the cooperation with JINR the Plenipotentiary representative of the government of Ukraine in JINR B.V. Grinev conducts an interview and refers high-skilled experts to job at the Institute from Ukraine. At present, 25 people sent from Ukraine work in JINR. A practice of the annual report seminar was brought by the Plenipotentiary representative of the government of Ukraine for a totalisation of works done by JINR employees above.

JINR employees and Ukrainian citizens tell in detail the audience about individual achievements during the period under review of the work in the Institute including scientific works which were published and accepted for press, and participations in scientific conferences for corresponding research themes and individual work plans in the future.

In 2010 collaborative works of young scientists of Shevchenko National University of Kiev in JINR were awarded the Ukrainian President prize.
