Popularization of Science is one of the priority tasks of the Institute.
Science is a collective cognitive human activity. As a rule, in order to succeed in science a specialist should spend many years learning and training. Working for the benefit of mankind, scientists speak a jargon often incomprehensible to the general public. Popularization of science is a translation of knowledge acquired in the course of scientific research into a language accessible to non-specialists. Therefore, to promote mutual understanding among scientists of different fields and to attract brainpower into science, JINR focuses on facilitation of such translation, that is, on popularization of science.
An inalienable part of popularization process is organisation of visits for representatives of mass media, students and teachers.
