   General Information

    The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) an international intergovernmental organization - was established through the Convention signed on 26 March 1956 by the founding Member States with the aim of uniting their efforts, scientific and material potentials for investigations of the fundamental properties of matter.The Institute bases its activities on the principles of openness for participation to all interested states, of their equal and mutually beneficial cooperation.


    The activity of JINR in Russia is realized in compliance with the Federal Law of the Russian Federation "On Ratification of the Agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research on the Location and Terms of Activity of JINR in the Russian Federation".


    JINR has bilateral agreements, protocols, and other documents on cooperation with about 700 institutions in 60 countries, including agreements concluded at governmental levels with Germany, Hungary, and Italy.The Institute also has extensive collaboration with international centres UNESCO, CERN, CLAF, ICTP and research centres in France, USA, Japan and other countries.

JINR has special agreements with:


       Director        V.G.Kadyshevsky
       Vice-Director        A.N.Sissakian
       Vice-Director      Ts.Vylov
       Chief Scientific Secretary               V.M.Zhabitsky
       Chief-Engineer        I.N.Meshkov



   Main Fields of Activity

   Reactors and Accelerators

Superconducting synchrotron for nuclei and heavy ions up to 6 GeV/n
U-400 U-400M and U-200
Heavy ion cyclotrons
Pulsed reactor with neutron flux 1016 n/cm2s
Neutron pulsed booster multiplier
10 GeV proton and light nuclei accelerator
680 MeV proton accelerator

   Facilities under Construction

Intense Resonance Neutron Source optimized to carry out investigations with resonance neutrons. The IREN will replace the IBR-30 booster.
Dubna Radioactive Ion Beams facility oriented for generation and acceleration of secondary radioactive beams.
A synchrotron radiation source (developed from nonbudgetary resources)

   Educational Programme

    The Joint Institute is called a "Scientific School of Excellence". Many scientists and engineers from the Member States have been trained in this centre. This important role of JINR is determined by its founding principles and by the scientific schools of D.I.Blokhintsev, N.N.Bogolyubov, G.N.Flerov, I.M.Frank, H.Hulubei, L.Infeld, G.Nadzhakov, H.Niewodniczanski, B.M.Pontecorvo, V.I.Veksler, and other outstanding physicists.

    JINR offers good conditions for training and education of talented young people. Over 30 years a branch of Moscow State University has been operating in Dubna. In 1991 a JINR's University Centre was set up. Here senior students from Moscow University, Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and other Russian institutes finish their training under the supervision of leading scientists of the Joint Institute, taking a practice at the JINR Laboratories. In 1995 postgraduate traning was organized at the Institute.

    On the initiative of the JINR Directorate and with active support of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Moscow Region and Dubna administrations, the International University of Nature, Society and Man was established in Dubna in 1994.

    JINR today is a large multidisciplinary international scientific centre incorporating basic research in the field of frontier particle and nuclear physics, development and application of high technologies, and university education in the relevant fields of knowledge.     As a recognition of the outstanding contribution of JINR scientists to modern physics and chemistry, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry named element 105 of the Periodic Table "Dubnium".
