BRICS Working Group Discusses Research Infrastructure and Mega-Science Projects

The 6th Meeting of the Working Group on Research Infrastructure and Mega-Science Projects was held at the Kurchatov Institute in Moscow and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna on 3 July as part of Russia’s BRICS Chairship.

The members of the working group confirmed their interest in co-operation on neural sources, synchrotrons, underground laboratories, the environment, and interdisciplinary projects.

“I have no doubt that the Working Group’s sixth meeting will stimulate further co-operation on science and technology within BRICS. Science unites. It erases borders. Together we face global challenges, and together we find solutions,” Deputy Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation Olga Petrova said.

The BRICS countries’ representatives capitalized on the opportunity presented by the meeting to discuss the 2024–2025 Research Infrastructure Action Plan, which will be submitted for consideration and inclusion in the BRICS Ministerial Declaration on Science, Technology, and Innovation.

The development of the flagship BRICS GRAIN project (designed for joint visits and operation of research facilities) and of policies for transnational access to research infrastructure were also discussed.
