Chief scientific secretary N.A.Russakovich, head of the International Cooperation Department D.V.Kamanin and head of the national Vietnamese group Nguen Man Shat also took part in the meeting. The delegation was interested in the ecological research of the Laboratory of Neutron Physics. The Vietnamese scientists are going to visit it during their next arrival in Dubna this November. They have already seen Moscow State University and the P.N.Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and are planning to learn about fundamental and applied physics development in Saint-Petersburg.

In addition to fundamental research, the members of the delegation saw the development of nanotechnologies and other innovative research on the territory of Dubna during their visit to the special economic zone.
