It is planned to create a production of superconducting resonators for scientific accelerator complexes in Belarus. This was discussed at a meeting between Alexander Shumilin, Chairman of the State Committee for Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus, and Grigory Trubnikov, Director of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna. In addition, in the near future it is also planned to agree on the concept of the scientific and technical program of the Union State "Accelerator complex based on superconducting resonators (" Accelerator-SPR ").

“This work is an important example of deep scientific and technical cooperation between scientists from Belarus and JINR. The results obtained in the near future will become the basis for new bilateral projects and the creation of high-tech production in our country. Thus, Belarus will enter the elite club of countries capable of producing such unique devices, ”stressed Alexander Shumilin. He also noted that within the framework of participation in the mega-science project NICA, the Physicotechnical Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and the Scientific Research Institute of Nuclear Problems of the Belarusian State University are fulfilling orders from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research for the development and supply of mechanical structures and products, as well as serial batches of custom printed circuit boards. , integrated circuits and low-voltage power systems, as well as gas detectors. And within the framework of the JINR-CERN cooperation on experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, serial batches of printed circuit boards and cooling panels of the calorimeter prototype are supplied (with preparation for serial production).

“The dynamics of export deliveries indicates the high efficiency of our work. In the first quarter of this year alone, Belarusian institutions and enterprises signed contracts with the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in the amount of over 600 thousand US dollars. By the end of the year, the planned volume of export of scientific and technical products, goods and services on the orders of the Institute in Dubna will amount to about 2 million US dollars, ”said Alexander Shumilin.

The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research is an international intergovernmental research organization created to combine the efforts, scientific and material potential of the Member States to study the fundamental properties of matter. JINR members today are 18 states: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Vietnam, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Korea, Cuba, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Russia, Romania, Slovakia, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Czech Republic.

The Plenipotentiary Representative of the Government of Belarus in the Committee of Plenipotentiaries of the Governments of the JINR Member States is the Chairman of the State Committee for Science and Technology Alexander Shumilin. In November 2020, at the Session of the Committee of Plenipotentiary Representatives of the Governments of the Member States of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Grigory Trubnikov was elected Director of JINR.
