MOSCOW, April 26. /TASS/. The NICA Collider of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) (Dubna, Russia), has become the first Russian megascience project to be put on the list of projects selected by the European strategic forum on research infrastructures, JINR deputy head Gregory Trubnikov told TASS on Tuesday.
"NICA is the first Russian project in history included in the roadmap of the European strategic forum," Trubnikov said.
The European strategic forum on research infrastructures is an intergovernmental organization, which includes experts from all European countries. Once in a few years they update the roadmap (ESFRI Road Map), marking the largest and the most promising scientific projects.
