Nazarbayev University will place a discussion about thermonuclear energy in Kazakhstan and over the world
The seminar was co-chaired by the President of “Kurchatovskiy institut” Scientific research center, member of Russian academy of sciences Evgeniy Velikhov and Head of NU Center for Energy Research Kanat Baigarin. “Science if the basis of wealth and security of the nation”, – declared in his speech Velikhov and noted that Kazakhstan as a leading supplier of nuclear fuel in the world should develop local technologies in this area. Launch of tokamak, device that allows to control thermonuclear synthesis, will help the country to make breakthrough in energy of the future: nuclear and thermonuclear energies. Kazakhstani tokamak for material testing is located at the territory of National nuclear center (Kurchatov c., East Kazakhstan region).
Nazarbayev University Center for Energy Research in its turn plans a number of projects in thermonuclear synthesis and energy. As Nazarbayev University managing director-Head of the Center for Energy Research Kanat Baigarin noted, these projects are partnered by Argonne National Lab, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and Princeton University (US).
