Vinca Institute of Nuclear Sciences celebrates 75 years of scientific excellence and impact

The Vinca Institute of Nuclear Sciences celebrated its 75th birthday with an official jubilee celebration on February 22, 2023. The prestigious event took place at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, honoring the remarkable achievements of the Institute over the past seven and a half decades. 

Established by the brilliant Serbian professor Pavle Savić who worked together with Nobel Prize winners Irene Joliot-Curie and Pyotr Leonidovich Kapitsa, the Vinca Institute has emerged as the foremost multidisciplinary research institution in Serbia. From just a few research groups and two research reactors, it has grown into the most prominent multidisciplinary research Institute in Serbia that covers the areas of physics, chemistry, biology, power engineering and technology, radiation and environmental protection, production of radiopharmaceuticals, accelerator science, nanoscience, and many more. During this long journey, 20 members of the Academy of Sciences stem from the Institute. As a leading institution for high-quality science in Serbia, many of the results obtained at the Vinca Institute found their application in industry, health care, and ecology.
The Vinca Institute’s achievements are reflected in some notable numbers. Currently, the Institute is actively working on 181 ongoing projects of which 51 bilateral projects, 45 COST actions, 31 projects funded by the Science Fund and Innovation Fund of the Republic of Serbia, and 54 international projects. We are happy to contribute to Vinca Institute’s success and recognition through the GrInShield project with best wishes for many more fruitful years to come.

Celebrating the 75th birthday of the Vinca Institute, we wish it the warmest wishes for further success. May the Institute’s accomplishments inspire future generations of researchers and foster a legacy of excellence in Serbian science.
