TSU and the UK National Physical Laboratory signed a general scientific cooperation agreement

July 23, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the national measurement standards laboratory for the United Kingdom, based at Bushy Park in Teddington, London, England. It is the largest applied physics organisation in the UK. Five-year agreement includes joint research, scientific and technical information exchange, experts exchange, lectures and workshops.
- «Partnership is just beginning - said Valery Svetlichny, the head of the laboratory of new materials and advanced technologies SFTI. - Laboratory represents TSU. At this stage, TSU and the UK National Physical Laboratory conduct joint studies on physico-chemical, and nonlinear optical properties of some doped crystals GaSe, terahertz generation efficiency and its application to the study of natural objects. Also we plan the subjects expansion of scientific cooperation, exchange visits, joint participation in Russian and international scientific programs, the creation of a joint laboratory».
According to the words of Vice-Rector for International Affairs Artem Rykun, TSU cooperation with the leading research centers has great importance.
- TSU and the UK National Physical Laboratory cooperate not only with the universities, but also with large observatories or laboratories on a par with the universities. The good example is the National Physical Laboratory. Its importance should be assessed, first of all, by professionals in this field. But this is exactly the place where science is concentrated – he added. - It is notable that that the British laboratories are extremely reluctant to establish a new contact. Before starting cooperation they are looking closely at the potential partner. And the contract is a sign that you are perceived in the scientific community as a really serious partner. Therefore the agreement of TSU and NPL is not just a protocol or formality but the real business agreement.
