During a working trip to Dubna, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin visited the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research and took part in the launch of the first stage of the NICA complex – a superconducting accelerator (booster).

Mikhail Mishustin took part in the launch of the booster of the NICA complex of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna

NICA’s mega-science project is of great importance. When the complex is fully launched, scientists will be able to recreate in laboratory conditions a special state of matter in which the Universe was in the first moments after the Big Bang – quark-gluon plasma.

Also, the implementation of the project will create a world-class experimental base. It can be used both for carrying out fundamental research on the most pressing issues of modern high-energy physics, and for performing applied research in such fields of science and technology as radiobiology and space medicine, cancer therapy, development of reactors, testing the radiation resistance of electronic devices. …

The commissioning of the NICA complex booster is already giving scientists access to the latest technologies. The ultramodern possibilities of using beams from this installation will allow high-tech treatment of complex oncological tumors (beam therapy of cancer diseases), solve problems in medical physiology during long-term space missions, help in the processing of nuclear waste from nuclear power plants, in testing microelectronics for space satellites, in ecology and many other areas.

NICA is a joint project of the Russian industrial complex and foreign partners. Mikhail Mishustin called it impressive.

In a conversation with First Vice Director of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research Grigory Trubnikov, the Prime Minister stressed that there should be more such projects with the participation of foreign partners, but with localization in Russia.

“Here, in the city of science, a complex model of interaction between the authorities of all levels, an advanced research and production complex, a special economic zone and an international scientific organization has developed. This is a unique situation. The government not only supports such models of science cities, but also forms new mechanisms to stimulate their creation and development, ”Mikhail Mishustin said.

During his visit to the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, the Head of Government met with young scientists and talked with the leadership of Dubna’s city-forming enterprises.
