KYOTO, October 2. /TASS/. Russia contributes to projects that are important for the global scientific community, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Sunday.
Speaking at the opening of the Science and Technology in Society (STS) forum in Kyoto, Dvorkovich said: "We make a considerable contribution to projects important for the global scientific community, such as the Large Hadron Collider, the European x-ray free electron laser, the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe, the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility."
He noted that development of Russian-Japanese cooperation in large-scale scientific projects has a long history. "Russian scientists take part in joint scientific and research work held at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization," Dvorkovich reminded.
