Science Bringing Nations Together

Doing more together

The Large Hadron Collider, LHC, is a new generation experimental facility under construction at CERN. The LHC will provide new information on the structure of matter for the 21st century.

The first international symposium on "LHC Physics and Detectors" was held in Dubna in 1996. The second one took place there in July 2000.

But why did prominent world experts gather in Dubna if the LHC is under construction at CERN?

The answer is that JINR makes an appreciable contribution both to the accelerator-related part of the project and to the development of the detectors for the experiments. As well as the scientific centres of JINR Member States, many factories, including former defence ones, are involved in this work.

Scheduled to run for many years, the LHC is an evidence of the development of long-term scientific co-operation, which also involves many industrial partners.
