The meeting participants also discussed the universities’ cooperation in the field of medical and radiological engineering and nuclear technologies, including joint educational and scientific programs. and learn about the technological capabilities of MEPhI.
“The science facility, the NEVOD Experimental Complex, makes a special impression. It allows for world-class research in the field of fundamental physics. Furthermore, undergraduate and postgraduate students of MEPhI take an active part in these studies at this facility, allowing them to develop research competencies more broadly. effective.
It is important to understand that creating and maintaining the operation of such unique installations is an important component of the activity of any research university, and MEPhI sets the highest standards here,”
