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.
