About Vinca

The Vinca Institute of Nuclear Sciences is among the oldest and largest scientific institutes in the region. Founded in 1948 as an institute for nuclear research, Vinca celebrates its 66th anniversary in 2014.

The Vinca Institute is also a place where the first controlled nuclear fission at Balkans took place. Today, it is a multidisciplinary institute in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology and material sciences, giving the major contribution to the Serbian scientific output - 20% of all scientific papers, in all fields of science, are affiliated to Vinca.

According to the 2011-2013 statistics, regarding the number and quality of scientific papers, Serbian top-ranked scientists are coming from the Vinca Institute both in the field of high energy physics and in physics in general. The Vinca Institute hosts today two European centers of excellence: in material sciences and in scientific education.

In HEP, the Vinca Institute is having the most diverse participation in HEP experiments in Serbia: ILC, CLIC, ATLAS, CMS and DELPHI and H1 in the past. Over a decade Vinca is involved in the project of a future International Linear Collider contributing to the detector and physics studies of the very forward region at ILC (FCAL). In November 2012, the Vinca Institute has signed Memorandum of Cooperation with CERN on the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) contributing to the CLIC Higgs physics studies. (http://www.vinca.rs/hep)
