Extension of JINR-Vietnam cooperation

On 28-30 August, 2023, the JINR delegation took part in the 8th Academic Conference on Natural Science for Young Scientists, Master and PhD Students from ASEAN countries (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) in Vinh, Vietnam.

The purpose of the visit was to build a long-term programme of cooperation with scientific and educational institutions of Vietnam, including the University of Vinh, in the field of personnel training. As a JINR Member State, Vietnam intends to actively develop cooperation, as well as to coordinate the scientific and educational agenda in the countries of Southeast Asia.

At a meeting with the President of the University Nguyen Hai Bang, representatives of the JINR Directorate B. Sharkov and O. Culicov, and Acting Rector of the State University "Dubna" A. Denikin discussed possible joint projects in education, and in particular, regional student internships for scholarship holders, Master and PhD students. They also agreed to prepare a memorandum of understanding, to strengthen bilateral relations between the University of Vinh and JINR, and to prepare a partnership agreement with the State University "Dubna". Persons responsible for the preparation of draft agreements were appointed.

Students and young scientists were told about the advanced projects, major achievements and available possibilities at JINR. They also learnt about the training programmes by the JINR University Centre aimed at attracting foreign students, and the programmes by the University "Dubna", which provide an opportunity for foreign students and postgraduates, coming to study at the University, to carry out a research project on the basis of JINR in order to defend a thesis and obtain a degree in the future.

At the conference, the participant had a chance to attend a transportable multimedia JINR exhibition to get acquainted with the main projects and "visit" the main facilities of the Institute by taking a virtual tour.
