JINR Delegation visited Warsaw and Bratislava on 29 March – 2 April. JINR Vice-Director M.G.Itkis, JINR Director Assistant V.V.Katrasev and FLNP Director A.V.Belushkin participated in meetings of Poland and Slovakia Coordinating Committees on cooperation with JINR. As V.V.Katrasev said, the meetings were devoted to distribution of a part of these JINR Member States’ fees to joint priority projects in the frames of the JINR Topical plan. For example, Poland is ready to direct 12% of its fee to JINR to such projects. This will form about 600 000 US dollars in 2010.
Directors and leading scientists of scientific centers and universities are members of the Poland and Slovakia Coordinating Committees headed by plenipotentiaries of these countries to JINR. In Poland, President of the Atomic Energy Agency Mihał Waligurski coordinates cooperation with JINR. Professor Stanislav Dubnička guides this activity in Slovakia.
