Work on the NICA collider in Dubna is in full swing, but the Russian physicists do not plan to confine it. RIA “Novosti” with reference to Eugene Levicheva, Deputy Director of the Siberian Institute, said that experts from various Russian scientific research institute are going to unite in order to realize a new project at the Institute of Nuclear Physics in Novosibirsk. We are talking about the creation of electron-positron collider on the basis of the Novosibirsk Institute of Nuclear Physics. At the moment, the Russian government has not allocated money for construction, but the preparation for the implementation of the project is in full swing. To this end, the Institute of Nuclear Physics, uses its own funds and grants.
“The first of the six government-approved mega-science-projects – the NICA collider, was funding, and it gives hope that will be implemented and our project. In addition, we have discussed in Dubna, Russian association of physical institutions for the implementation of such projects. I hope that united we will have more capacity to “break through” the project “, – said Levichev.
Experts from the Institute of Nuclear Physics in Novosibirsk are actively working on the construction of the first of the NICA project, so the management of the Institute hopes to attract colleagues from other research institutes to implement the Siberian project. Physicists hope that they will be able to convince authorities of the need for public financing of construction of a unique electron-positron collider. With it, you can solve many different problems, but the cost, according to preliminary estimates, could reach up to 27 billion rubles.
Levichev said that at the moment this type colliders in the world does not exist, so create it on the basis of the Novosibirsk Institute of Nuclear Physics will help Russian scientists to take a promising niche.
