General information on collaboration



A new stage of closer cooperation between JINR and the Arab Republic of Egypt started on March 3, 2009 when the Agreement between the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research and the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the Government of ARE was signed. At the same time, ties among JINR, national scientific centres of Egypt and Egyptian scientists have existed for a very long time.
 
Scientific contacts among Egyptian physicists and their colleagues from Dubna were established at the end of the1960s – the beginning of the 1970s, when Ahmed El-Nagy and Mohammed Sherif started to take part in the studies using the photoemulsion techniques at the Laboratory of High Energies (at the group headed by K.D.Tolstoy). The cooperation with the Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority, Cairo University, University of Menofia and Tabbin Institute for Metallurgical Studies was carried out within the framework of agreements (protocols). In particular, the protocols fixed terms of exchange of scientists and scientific and technical information; in accordance with them JINR granted fellowships to several Egyptian specialists. No less than 15 specialists became JINR fellowship holders. Seven Egyptian specialists defended their theses at JINR.

Dubna, May  27,  2009. Visit of the delegation of specialists from Egypt headed by Dr. Mohamed Gamal Halifa, the Director of the Tabbin Institute for Metallurgical Studies (Cairo) (right)


The majority of scientists who collaborate in joint studies with JINR carry them out at Egyptian institutes using methods and techniques developed at JINR and come for short visits to Dubna. In 2010 Prof. Tarek Hussein and Prof. Hussein El Samman paid working visits to JINR. Tamer Abuelfadl visited FLNP, Eman Hamza visited BLTP to carry out joint research. Ali Khalil, Nasser Sweilam, Osama Fouad and Khaled Hegab visited JINR as the experts in the course of preparation for the 1st Joint Coordination Committee on JINR-ARE Cooperation.

In 2011 within the framework of the funded joint research projects approved by the 1st Joint Coordination Committee JINR hosted 17 visitors from ARE; by 1 January 2012 the total number of days of their stay in JINR amounted to 613 days. In its turn, ARE hosted 6 visitors, and the total number of days of their stay has amounted to 59. Also, an Egyptian researcher, Dr. Mohamed Abdelhady, visited INFN (Gran Sasso, Bologna, Italy) for 7 days within the framework of the joint project. It should also be noted that 4 researchers from JINR participated in the 8th Conference on Nuclear and Particle Physics (NUPPAC’11), which was held in Hurghada, ARE, 20-24 November, 2011.

In 2010-2012, an Egyptian student, Mahmoud Gaafar, was granted the BLTP fellowship and worked at JINR. It further allowed him to become Master of Science in Egypt, publish 4 papers and make reports at 3 international conferences, including the International Conference «Mathematical Modeling and Computational Physics» in Stara Lesna, Slovakia on 4-8 July 2011; and the International Superconductive Electronics Conference (ISEC 2011) in Holland, Hague, on 18-23 September 2011.

Every year since 2009 a Practice for Young Specialists from ARE has been held at JINR.The 1st Practice for Young Specialists from ARE was held on October 18-November 8, 2009, the 2nd Practice – May 16-June 6, 2010, the 3rd Practice – May 15-June 5, 2011. In 2012 the 4th Practicewas held from May 13 to June 3, 2012, 15 young specialists from ARE participated in the Practice. The 5th Practice was held from May 12 to June 2, 2013; the 6th Practice – from May 19 to June 8, 2014. During these schools the participants have lectures and practical training at JINR laboratories. The knowledge and experience gained at these schools allow their participants to continue their studies in Egypt and give them an opportunity to be involved in the JINR-ARE joint research projects.

Thus, fruitful scientific cooperation of Egyptian physicists with JINR scientists continues to consolidate and grow. Due to this cooperation, new opportunities to develop direct contacts with the largest accelerating centers of the world open to scientists from the Arab Republic of Egypt.

Joint Coordination Committee


Owing to the Agreement signed at the level of governments between the Arab Republic of Egypt and JINR, new opportunities to continue and develop the program of cooperation with Egypt within the framework of approved joint research projects arose. Such approach to the countries working within the framework of bilateral agreements proved to be quite good. The JINR-RSA cooperation may serve as an example in this context.

The Joint Coordination Committee was formed to solve current issues of the JINR-ARE cooperation and includes three permanent representatives from each side and experts nominated in specific tasks of the Committee.

The Joint Coordination Committee includes:

From JINR

The representative of the ARE Government to the JINR Committee of Plenipotentiaries



The Representative of the government of the Arab Republic of Egypt to JINR from 2009 to the present day is Professor Mohamed Tarek Hussein Zakaria, Advisor of the President, former President of the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology.

Prof. Tarek Hussein, born on 22.04.1952, is a theoretical physicist whose research focuses on phenomenological models of hadronic interactions in particle physics and the clustering phenomena of particle production in hadron-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus interactions. In 2004-2007 he was the President of the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology in Egypt, Professor of Theoretical Physics and Vice Dean for Education at the Faculty of Science, Cairo University. Since 2006 he has also been the manager of Cairo University’s Center for Advanced Interdisciplinary Sciences. He is a Member of the Council of Atomic Energy Authority, Egypt.

Prof. T.Hussein received his B.Sc. and PhD in High Energy Particle Physics from Cairo University and has spent most of his career there. In 1995, he was awarded the Egyptian Prize in Physics and in 2000 he was awarded the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Medal in Physics.

Prof. T.Hussein coordinated the Egyptian National Committee on Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East (SESAME) in 2006. In 2010 he was elected Vice President of the Counsel on the SESAME project. He is also a member of the Egyptian Physics Society.
 
 
Professor Tarek Hussein receives the Golden Medal from the Rector of the State University of Land Use Planning (Russia)
 
  
Prof. Tarek Hussein about the Cooperation with JINR:

Strong historical and scientific ties have been maintained between Egypt and JINR since the 1960s. This has been done through bilateral agreements with Cairo University, the Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority, the University of Menoufia and the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research. It allowed exchange of scientists and researchers and joint research for the benefit of both parties.

The Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology as the coordinator of the research centers in Egypt demonstrated its willingness to closer cooperation with JINR within the framework of a bilateral agreement on the governmental level, that will allow Egyptian scientific institutes to participate in JINR activities, to use its basic facilities and to participate in the committees of the basic areas of scientific interest to Egypt, as well as to participate in meetings of the Scientific Council of JINR and bilateral or multilateral research that is organized in the Russian and/or Egyptian research centers.

The Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology hopes that this cooperation will offer a good opportunity for training young Egyptian researchers in various fields in numerous disciplines developed at JINR, as well as in research applications of nuclear safety, radiation biology and nanotechnology.

Egypt plans to develop cooperation with other Russian scientific and educational organizations, but the project with Dubna shows good promise to be the largest in Russia.
