Students feedbacks

Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
I am really glad I had the opportunity to participate in the Summer Student Program 2019 at JINR-Dubna, and to experience work on a real scientific project. Besides the research project, there were several presentations, seminars and exciting excursions organized to different laboratories, through which we got a better overview of the entire Institute. What is more, we also had the chance to make new international friends from all over the world and even possible future collaboration partners. I would like to thank the University Center of JINR, the Organizing Committee and the Management of the Frank Laboratory for Neutron Physics for the flawless organization and financial support; to my supervisor and working colleagues for the excellent working atmosphere throughout my stay in Dubna where I was welcomed as a member of the collective, feeling very comfortable. All in all I am happy and grateful that I dedicated my time for useful, meaningful and productive activities.
