The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) is an international intergovernmental organization comprising the following 18 Member States: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Cuba, Georgia, Kazakhstan, North Korea, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam. On the governmental level, agreements have been concluded on the cooperation between JINR and the following countries: Germany, Hungary, Italy, and the Republic of South Africa.
JINR's international character, its scientific schools, and its basic research facilities make up the grounds for its successful research activity. But JINR's development as a really international organization should also be based on the continuous inflow of the gifted youth from JINR Member States. It is exactly the task of the JINR University Centre (the UC) to make for this inflow. The main fields of the UC's activity are the following:
- Organization and conduction at the Institute's level of international actions like student practices and schools.
- Organization of visits to JINR for students, postgraduates, and secondary school pupils of JINR Member States.
- Attracting to JINR graduate students from its Member States and other countries for doing diploma work and organization of their studies.
- Enrollment in the JINR postgraduate studies.
Even a brief visit to JINR helps greatly a student to choose a field of his/her future research and the subject of his/her diploma work, which can be performed at JINR, and to make a better choice of his/her prospective research supervisor at JINR.
