The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), an independent intergovernmental organization operating within the framework of the United Nations, is continuously working on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and the peaceful use of nuclear technology. The IAEA periodically holds scientific meetings and scientific training seminars, where specialists from IAEA member countries can receive training.
In our country, which is a full member of the IAEA, all conditions have been created for the development of scientific and technical knowledge of active young scientists. In particular, at the S.U.Umarov Physical–Technical Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Tajikistan, a number of young physicists are conducting research activities, who, in addition to carrying out research work, also conduct active social activities. In this regard, we can note the active participation of the youth of the institute in organizing and conducting the republican competition “Science – is the beacon of enlightenment” and training sessions of the physics section of the Minor Academy of Sciences. For its part, the Government of the country provides young people who are not indifferent to the development of science and education with ample opportunities for internships in prestigious scientific centers of foreign countries.
This year, with the support of the Government of the country, the head of the physics section of the Minor Academy of Sciences, a member of the technical secretariat of the Republican competition “Science – is the beacon of enlightenment”, a researcher at the International Center for Nuclear Physics Research of the Institute S.F.Odinaev , underwent an internship from 2 to 15 July at the International Center of Vienna, in knowledge in the field of peaceful application of nuclear technologies and their implementation in their countries.In particular, directly teaching experiments were carried out in the following areas:
- Fundamentals of physics and nuclear technology;
- Radiation characteristics and radiation protection;
- Reactor physics, health physics and radiochemistry;
- Characteristics of objects using atomic energy.
Participation in these events lays the foundation for training domestic personnel in the direction of the peaceful use of nuclear technologies and the development of high-level technologies.
