Today, the Director-General of CERN, Fabiola Gianotti, and the Minister of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia, Blaženka Divjak, signed an Agreement admitting Croatia as an Associate Member of CERN.
The HORIZON 2020 'RBI-T-WINNING' project, worth around one million euros, has improved the research capacity of the Rudjer Boskovic Institute's (RBI) Department of Theoretical Physics (ThPhyS), the RBI director David M. Smith said at a presentation of the project results today.
Marking the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the RBI scientists have launched an invitation to young girls to join them in exploring our world and in making it a better place to live.
New fundamental results of the research of mechanochemical processes that pave the way to their faster application in the chemical industry.
We recently made a breakthrough in modelling the mechanism of the production of hydrogen gas in the water-gas shift reaction (WGSR).
Researchers form the RBI Laboratory for Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation Maria Brbić and Ivica Kopriva have developed a new method for data clustering based on the linear subspace model as the generator of the corresponding functional groups. These findings were published in one of the most influential scientific journals in the field - 'IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics' (IF 8.803).
The Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI) and the Institute of Croatian Language and Linguistics (IHJJ) have today signed a co-operation agreement on Croatian language learning programs for foreign researchers at the RBI.
The project "Using synergy to achieve excellence in the research and development of detectors, sensors and electronics" is the first successfully completed structural project in Croatia, finished in a record-short period of six months, which was marked with a ceremony inaugurating the Centre for Detectors, Sensors and Electronics at RBI today.
Croatian solar photovoltaic (PV) cell producer Solvis and the country’s internationally competitive Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI) will work on the development of innovative PV cells and modules in 2019 under a joint project worth nearly EUR 2 million, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Thanks to the project funded by the International Visegrad Fund (IVF) the scientists from the Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI) in cooperation with their colleagues from three countries in the region - Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia investigate the influence of toxic substances on the adaptation of algae cells in the aquatic system.
The prestigious journal ‘Reviews of Modern Physics’ has recently published a most interesting review paper on the novel theoretical proposals for quantum-enhanced measurements, which are non-standard, and thus ground-breaking, even in the academic literature on quantum metrology. One of the authors in the international team of researchers is Ugo Marzollino from the Ruđer Bošković Instute (RBI).
