Dubna Cluster for Nuclear Physics and Nano Technologies
The Territorial Innovative Cluster for Nuclear Physics and Nanotechnologies in Dubna was founded in 2012. Among the key participants are:
- The University “Dubna” established in 1994 as the State University of the Moscow region,
- Scientific Center “Joint Institute for Nuclear Research” (JINR) is an academic ground for studies for undergraduates of the Moscow State University named after Lomonosov M.V., the National Nuclear Research University “Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute” (NNRU MIFI), the Moscow Institute for Physics and Technology based on the training base of a branch of the Scientific Research Institute of Nuclear Physics by the Moscow State University and on the laboratory and research base of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research,
- The National Nuclear Research University “Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute” (NNRU MIFI),
- The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR).
As early as March, 2014 the Cluster for Nuclear Physics and Nano Technologies in Moscow satellite Dubna was nominated among the four most successful clusters in Russia. It mainly specializes in track membranes, thin-film technologies, hadronic therapy, charge-particle accelerators, ionizing radiation detectors, superconductivity technologies, laser technologies use, constructive composite materials, nano composite materials, missile engineering and aircraft construction technologies.
The Cluster’s slogan is “We united to ensure that capabilities of each participant bring about partnership advantages”.
The Cluster’s advantages:
- The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research is the largest research center in Eastern Europe,
- Up to 60% of graduates of the University “Dubna” come and want to work with us,
- Dubna is slightly remote from the megalopolis and does not experience an influence of it but is in a good reach by car,
- The academic city has a special atmosphere,
- Privileges of the special economic zone “Dubna”,
- Wonderful nature and developed social infrastructure,
- Moderate prices for housing construction,
- Participants of the cluster “Dubna” rank top positions in high-tech spheres.
In December 23rd, 2014 the public enterprise “Zelenograd Development Corporation” signed an agreement on cooperation with the Territorial Innovative Cluster for Nuclear Physics and Nano Technologies.
Objectives of the agreement are as follows:
- Working out and execution of joint innovative scientific and educational and infrastructural projects,
- Development of scientific and research and technical cooperation,
- Promotion of research and technical products of the cluster’s participants (route-to-market).
