1 JINR: Current activities and Prospects WELCOME!Delegation of the Organization for EconomicCo-operation and Development (OECD)JINR: Current activities and ProspectsAlexey SissakianDirector, Academician of RAS
2 JINR – a Centre of Broad International Partnership on the Russian Land - 18 Member States- 6 Associated Members Statesabout 700 research partners in60 countries- staff members ~ 5500The agreement on the establishment of JINR was signed on 26 March 1956 in MoscowThree Pillars of JINR:Great experience and world-wide recognized traditions of scientific schools.Large and unique park of basic facilities for fundamental and applied research.Status of an international intergovernmental organization.
3 JINR’s Science Policy Fundamental Science Innovative activities 7-Year Programme: ‘2003 – 2009’ (complete and successful realization)‘2010 – 2016’ (final draft approved by the Scientific Council, Sept and CPP, Nov. 2009)Road Map ( )Basic Scientific DirectionsHigh Energy PhysicsNuclear PhysicsCondensed Matter PhysicsFundamentalScienceInnovativeactivitiesEducationprogrammeSpecial Economic Zone “Dubna”Public-Private-PartnershipUC, DIAS-THInternational Univ. “Dubna”33
4 JINR’s Large-Scale Basic Facilities II.Particle Physics and High-Energy Heavy-Ion PhysicsNuclotron-M: Stage 1 of NICA (2010)The main goal: to reach in 2010 the Nuclotronproject parameters:accelerated heavy ions A~200beam intensity ~ 109 ion/cycle ( Hz)at kinetic energy ~ (1,0-4,5) GeV/u for Au79+NICA/MPD ( ):Heavy Ion Collider with:- maximum collision energy of sNN = 11 GeVaverage luminosity ~ 1027 cm-2 s-1 (for Au79+)polarized proton beams with energy s ~ 26 GeVExperimental study of hot and dense strongly interacting QCD matter and spin physics.
5 International Expertise of NICA II.International Expertise of NICARound Table Discussion IV Physics at NICA9-12 September 2009JINR, DubnaN I C A M E M O R A N D U MThe IV Round Table Workshop on “Physics at NICA” gathered 82 experts in nuclear physics representing leading research institutions of 16 countries. On the basis of this examination they have concluded that the NICA project possesses potential for truly outstanding discoveries.The implementation of the NICA project at Dubna brings JINR to the forefront of the current effort in high density nuclear physics.First R–ECFA meeting in Russia8 – 10 October, 2009Moscow, DubnaECFA Chairman Prof. Tatsuya Nakada“I would like to mention that Russian physicists have been for long taking part in programmes at European accelerators with much success. Their ever-increasing contribution has become a great part of the process of the accelerator experiments’ development in the world.Concerning the NICA project, its already existing infrastructure and modern standards that are higher than in the present accelerators should be definitely considered as its advantages. The collider’s physics programme is very interesting”.55
6 JINR-CERN cooperation panel International Partnership Programmes in Particle PhysicsII.CERN – participation in 15 projects,including 3 LHC experiments: ATLAS, CMS, ALICE with the total contribution of 25 M Swiss francsThe JINR physics teams in ATLAS, CMS and ALICE are working on several important physics analysis subjects and strongly participating in preparation for the data taking.JINR-CERN cooperation panel11 October 2009, Dubna“We intend to sign a bilateral agreement at the beginning of the next year on JINR participation in CERN projects and CERN involvement in the NICA project that is very interesting for us and is actually a complementary project to the LHC at CERN”.R.HeuerCERN Director for Research and Computing Sergio Bertolucci,CERN Director-General Rolf Heuer,JINR Director Alexey Sissakian
