JINR and the Republic of Belarus are strengthening cooperation

On December 1, the International Scientific and Practical Conference “Topical Issues of Ensuring Scientific and Technological Security” was held in Minsk, dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the formation of the State Committee for Science and Technology (SCST) of the Republic of Belarus.
Representatives of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research took part in the conference. In his congratulations on the occasion of the anniversary, JINR Director Grigory Trubnikov emphasized that cooperation between JINR and the State Committee for Science and Technology continues to develop. Fundamental developments in the field of medicine, research into DNA regeneration processes, the method of neutron activation analysis in ecology and biomonitoring, satellite systems and computer computing are being jointly implemented, and cooperation in the field of education is developing. Grigory Trubnikov announced the creation of a JINR cloud cluster at the Joint Institute for Energy and Nuclear Research - Sosny (JIPNR - Sosny) near Minsk. One such cluster already operates on the territory of the Republic of Belarus - at the Institute of Nuclear Problems of the Belarusian State University.

JINR presented reports on the NICA megaproject and its role in the development of science (O. Belov) and on the JINR IT infrastructure (V. Korenkov), on the role of network research universities in the training of highly qualified scientific personnel (S. Harutyunyan).

The report by LIT scientific director Vladimir Korenkov was devoted to geographically distributed computer infrastructures for large scientific projects. He noted the integrative role of the IT infrastructure based on LIT JINR for connecting calculations for the megascience project into a single geographically distributed computer network.
