Belarus and Dubna agree on contracts for more than 400 thousand dollars

Those who appreciate the gentle humor of Soviet films can also appreciate the meaning of the question raised in the film "Three plus two": "What is the difference between kumizons and mumizons?" And although half a century ago, the quintet of actors, including Andrei Mironov, did not dare to voice the answer to this sacramental question from the screen, now it is available to all inquisitive high school students, especially Belarusian students who annually undergo international internships at the Russian scientific center of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna.

According to the chairman of the Committee on Science and Technology of Belarus Alexander Shumilin, in the first half of this year contracts worth over $1.2 million were signed and agreed with the institute.
This NICA megascience-project "is aimed at studying the fundamental properties of the superdense state of baryonic matter, as well as the high temperatures and densities of nuclear matter created by collisions of heavy ions."

In addition, Shumilin said, a number of unique mechanics and electronics units for the CMS muon detector were developed and delivered to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). ”Minskers are also participating in the creation of a multifunctional detector of the NICA accelerator complex.

And part of the work is traditionally aimed "at participating in the two largest CERN experiments - the Compact Muon Solenoid and the ATLAS project. Segments of cooling panels, electronics protection modules, and elements of mechanical structures are supplied for them," explained the Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology.

The members of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, created in order to combine the efforts of the scientific and material potential of the member states to study the fundamental properties of matter, are 18 states: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Vietnam, Georgia, Kazakhstan, North Korea, Cuba, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Russia, Romania, Slovakia, Uzbekistan, Ukraine and Czech Republic.
