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.
The deputy prime minister stressed that Russia "has a competitive scientific potential, is an indispensable part of the international community and is integrated in the global innovational eco-system." "Regardless of the intensity of political dialogue, our country is traditionally participating with great interest in the implementation of international research projects and has a reputation of a reliable partner," he concluded.
The Science and Technology in Society (STS) forum opens in Kyoto on Sunday. Over 1,500 scientists, political and public leaders from more than 150 countries will take part in the forum. The Russian delegation to the forum is led by Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich.
