TeFeNICA '20

TeFeNICA 2020 - Team for the Future of NICA

It's a new project started as a collaboration of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna (Russia) and Warsaw University of Technology.

Team for the future of NICA is a program of few months long internship. Program is dedicated for students of both bachelor/engineering studies (3 months long practice ) and Master's degree studies (6 months - 1-year program). All students interested in the NICA project are invited to participate. You can register for the program all-year round by email tefenica@jinr.ru or for the summer program here.  

At the end of the practice
each Student will prepare a final presentation, which will be the basis of his / her lecture during the seminar in one of its final days. Lecture preparation is a requirement to finish the practice. The language of instruction during the seminar is English.

Practically every day of the Internship 
we start with a lecture. The aim of those lectures is to introduce participants to the issues we deal with at the JINR within the topic of the Engineering Support sector.  A complementary goal is to organize and consolidate this knowledge and to provide students with a minimum of engineering and technical knowledge, including health and safety regulations.

Interns will take part in several scientific excursions,
planned within JINR Laboratories. These trips should allow students to acquire a knowledge of the research capabilities of the Institute as well as applied solutions and technologies.  Interns will gain practical knowledge of what are major research projects in high energy physics.

Students will take part in several trips around Russia.
It is planned to include trip to Moscow, the capital of the Russian Federation. We plan to visit there, among others, Red Square and the Kremlin. Other trips are also planned, usually as weekend activities combining sightseeing with the integration of the group. Traditionally, in the program for groups from Poland, there is a trip to Tver and Miednoje, as places of mass executions of Poles (officers, intelligentsia, and officials) captured in September 1939, then murdered in Tver and buried in Miednoje.
