Moreover, the lecture programme will acquaint students from the RSA with educational opportunities of JINR, including the Virtual Laboratory, as well as major stages of Russian history. Furthermore, this week, students will have a meeting with deans of four RSA universities, namely the University of Zululand, the University of South Africa, the Stellenbosch University, and the Central University of Technology, who have come to the Joint Institute for participation in the 12th International training programme for decision-makers in science and international scientific cooperation JEMS – «JINR Expertise for Member States and Partner Countries» (JEMS-12).
A rich cultural programme is prepared for participants of the 1st stage of the International Student Practice.
