Wrocław Technology Park and NCBJ-organized Świerk Technology Park are jointly inviting all interested parties to attend the “Offer of technology parks for modern industry” conference to be held in the Wrocław Technology Park Sigma building at 11, Duńska str. in Wrocław  on Monday, September 28, 2015. ----

Get in touch with nuclear reactor, ionizing radiation, and mysteries of the Universe

NCBJ in 19th edition of Science Festival in Warsaw
NCBJ participates in organization of this year 19th edition of Science Festival in Warsaw. Events of the Festival Warsaw will start on Saturday, September 19, 2015. We have prepared a number of lectures (in Polish), workshops, excursions and scientific shows presenting selected topics of research conducted in our Institute, which (we hope) will be interesting for both youth and adults. Our employees will tell you what methods are used to study radiation emitted by nuclei, how scientists are trying to reveal genesis of our Universe, or how the largest research facilities on Earth are being developed/constructed. All interested are invited to attend our events organized in the Warsaw University Physics Faculty building at 5, Pasteura str. in Warsaw, and to participate in an excursion to Świerk. ----

The COSMO-15 international conference held in Warsaw University Old Library Building came to end. World-class cosmologists discussed fundamental issues related to origin, early evolution, and current structure of our Universe. Majority of the experts agreed that a breakthrough in investigations on dark matter is just around the corner. ----

Debate on nature of our Universe and science limits

Panel discussion on nature of our Universe and science boundaries
Outstanding physicists from the entire world, attendees of the COSMO-15 Conference held in Warsaw, are going to participate in an open debate entitled “Is modern physics crossing the boundaries of science?” to be held on Thursday, September 10, 2015 in the Warsaw University Library Old Building (BUW). The panel discussion will be opened for the general public. ----

CCOSMO-15: in two years we might spot the first dark matter particles

New detectors will help to definitively resolve the neutralino existence question within the two coming years
Mysterious dark matter observed in cosmos mainly as gravitational shadows has been inferred for a long time. Perhaps it is composed of neutralinos, particles predicted by super-symmetric theories of the matter. Estimations performed by a team of physicists from NCBJ in Świerk suggest that new generation detectors (just in the commissioning phase) will help to definitively resolve the neutralino existence question within two coming years. ----

Success of women engaged in nuclear physics

MARIA reactor building
Monika Szołucha won national phase of the Graduate of the Year contest. The other five finalists of the international phase came from Brasil, France, The Netherlands, Russia,  and Great Britain. ----

Physicists are scrutinizing foundations of the Universe at the COSMO-15 international conference

COSMO-15 Conference in Warsaw
Our Universe continues to be a huge mystery for scientists. Participants of the COSMO-15 international conference held in Warsaw between September 7-11, 2015 are scrutinizing fundamental issues regarding origin, evolution, and structure of the Universe. ----

Renaissance of the BNCT therapy

Visualization of the new test facility for research on epithermal neutron beams exited from the MARIA reactor
The MARIA nuclear reactor operated in Świerk will soon be equipped with some new test facilities. NCBJ researchers are going to put in operation a lab dedicated for research on beams of epithermal neutrons. That will enable research on Boron-Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT), a method to treat some cancer types, e.g. brain cancer. ----
