Memorial plaque of a prominent scientist, arctic explorer and writer Dr. František Běhounek was revealed on the occasion of the 120th anniversary of his birth on the building of DRD (department of radiation dosimetry) NPI at the Bulovka Hospital complex on Tuesday, November 13, 2018.
On the occasion of this year´s 50th anniversary of the magazine's first publication, editorial staff of the Journal of Radiodiagnostic and Nuclear Chemistry has asked selected contributors, including our staff member Jan Kučera, for a paper to the special issue. He wrote an article "Activation analysis in Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic: more than 50 years of activities", which is already available online (see: https://doi.org/10.1007/s10967-018-6257-7 ).
Plaque commemorating Frantisek Behounek will be unveiled in Department of Radiation Dosimetry at 4 pm, Tuesday 13th November 2018.
Once again, within the Week of Science and Technology, the traditional Openhouse will take place on November 9-10, 2018, in the scientific area placed in Řež. Besides the NPI CAS, it is organized by ÚJV Řež, the Research Center Řež and the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry CAS too.
Until 11 October you can see a exhibition of photos by Michal Dobeš, Head of the Safety and Radiation Protection Unit of NPI, in the Exhibition Hall of Ladislav Čepelák at the Veltrusy Municipal Office in Palacký Street.
Our stand – the tent on a grassy area, more precisely – could be seen on September 5th during all the day at this year's 6th edition of the open-air Science Festival. The event with the subtitle „Fun (not only) Scientific and Technical Laboratory at Kulaťák“ was organized by the Czech Technical University (CTU), the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague, the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS), the National Technical Library and the House of Children and Youth of Prague, at Vítězné Square in Prague´s quarter Dejvice near to CTU buildings.
NPI was presented for the first time from 18th to 21st July within the Science Garden at this year's edition of the biggest Czech open-air music festival Colours of Ostrava 2018. This happened under the activities of the physics popularization group IPPOG CR, which includes employees and students of Charles University (FMP CU), the Czech Technical University in Prague (FNSPE CTU), the Silesian University in Opava (FPS SU) and Palacký University in Olomouc (JLO PU).
Ing. Martina Klímová won award and financial prize for the best diploma thesis within the whole Faculty of Agrobiology, Food and Natural Resources of the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague. ...
In the week of June 12-15, 2018, the traditional conference “RHIC/AGS Annual Users' Meeting” was held at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), USA. At this year's meeting the newest results from the scientific program at BNL's accelerators RHIC (Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider) and AGS (Alternating Gradient Synchrotron) were highlighted including studies of production of heavy quarks and quarkonia, results from the study of the phase diagram of nuclear matter, small collision systems, jets and proton spin.
For the third time, we took part in the Science Fair, a popularization event organized by the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) within the Open Science project. It took place in two halls of the exhibition area PVA EXPO in Letňany part of Prague, from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th June. Vladimír Semián and Miroslav Dočkal prepared the stand from Wednesday afternoon, with help of Martina Lužová – she arrived to the Fair directly from his stage placement in Dubna institute (Russia) – and thanks to Jaroslav Laufka, which provided us with material and transport. Our stand was relatively small again, but the number of people interested in it was even bigger. Because it was not the first time, the organizers gave free space before the stand enough, which had been proved to be very prudent.
