Research Projects Group has an ongoing collaboration with numerous laboratories around the world, signed contracts of bilateral collaboration and similar forms of cooperation:JapanCollaboration with the group of Prof. Makabe at Keio University has continued for 19 years. It resulted in 28 published papers in international refereed journals, 7 invited lectures (some were published as chapters in proceedings), large number of papers at different conferences and the work that resulted in preparation of numerous Ph.D and M.Sc. theses. Work on joint projects is performed both in Japan and in Belgrade with transfer of theoretical techniques, data and experimental results going in both directions. Most importantly collaboration with the group in Japan enabled the laboratory in belgrade to stay in touch with topical research in fields of non-equilibrium plasmas and with applications in electronic industry.We hope that continuation of this collaboration will be supported:1. Signing of the bilateral agreement would enable sicntists from our country to take advantage of funds distributed by JSPS for exchange.2. For many years the principal investigator, has been trying to organize scientists that have an ongoing well established collaboration with Japan into an organized group that would prepare a proposal for Japnese investment into the science of Serbia and Montenegro. The idea was to attract the funds for aid to our country, which may be significant but may be used only once, and from other resources. The idea was also to have an organized support in Japan through our collaborators and friends. Similar arrangement was made for support of science in Romania.3. One would benefit greatly if the Ministry could find funds for shippment of equipment that was given to laboratories in Serbia by our Japanese colleagues. For example we need to transfer vacuum chamber and pulsed power supplies, which is not easy to organize for small shippments even i price of the shippment itself is acceptable.4. Collaboration with Japan would be of mutual benefit through a possible transfer of modern technologies and conenctions with modern industry and on the other hand Serbia has a well developed and qualified nettwork of science that may be involved in projects at a relatively low cost.Australia-Australian National University, Canberra Australia Prof. R.W. Crompton (Australian Academy of Science) and dr S.J. Buckman, collaboration on measurements and interpretation of cross sections for elctron scattering, transport coefficients and collisions with radicals in ionized gases. Studies of positron transport and studies of aurora borealis (with University of Adelaide) are also planned. With Prof. Crompton 7 papers in international journals have been published and with dr. Buckman only 1 paper was published so far but collaboration is more active at the moment. A trilateral agreement of collaboration was signed between Institute of Physics, Australian National University and Keio University.-University of Northern Queensland Cairns, Australija; Dr R.E Robson and Dr. R.D White, collaboration on transport theory and calculations of transport coefficients, 1 paper was published so far in a journal.1. In case of Australia it would be of advantage to work toward signing of a bilateral agreement between two countries and to check which possibilities are opened by such an agreement.USA-Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics JILA, NIST University of Colorado Boulder, SAD; dr A.V. Phelps-modeling of low current Townsend discharges at highe values of the reduced field. So far 6 papers have been published in international journals and 2 invited lectures at international conferences. There is a large body of results that need finalizing and funds for a visit to USA could speed up the process.- Collaboration with University of Illinois at Champaigne-Urbana, USA is in the planning stages; M.J. Kushner, Benchmark calculations for complex plasma models by using methods for electron and ion swarms.Collaboration is planned with other centers in USA.In general there are several issues concerning collaboration with the USA:1. I have received information from US officials that we are already able to apply for funding to US agencies. Then one year later we have received information that that will soon be possible. This issue should be cleared.2. Possibilities for funding of research in Serbia by the US industry and national institutes should be considered and investigated.3. There are numerous possibilities to obtain older equipment or veen complete experiments from laboratories in USA (and other countries such as Australia, Japan, germany,...). This proposition should be opened in all negotiations with USA (and other countries) and special funds should be available for shipping and even for sending our scientists to take part in disassembly and packing of the equipment.Poland- Italy-Technical University of Gdansk, Polska; J.Mechlinska-Drewko, Pedagogical University Slupsk, (Universita degli studi di Trento Italia), Grzegorz Karwasz: Collaboration on measurements and interpretation of transport coefficients for electrons of interest for atmospheric pollution studies. So far 5 papers were published in international journals and 3 invited lectures at international conferences.Hungary-Research Institute for Solid State Physics and Optics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences,Budapest, Hungary; Z.Donko: Modeling and diagnostics of glow and Townsedn discharges by application of the hybrid model. So far 3 papers were published.Collaboration would benefot from funds for the exchange and from bilateral agreement.Rusian federation-Institute for inovative research Trinity, Troitsk, Rusija, dr A. Napartovich and dr N.Dyatko: collaboration on studies of kinetic phenomena in plasmas such as negative mobilityin in low temperature plasmas with electronegative gases. One paper published so far in an international journal.The collaboration was initiated through official bilateral agreement with Russian federation. 1. The bilateral program should be reactivated.2. There is an agency in Rusia which distributes foreign funding to Russian institutes and universities. Collaboration with that agency should be proposed and also a similar agency shoul dbe formed in our country.Portugal-Technical University Lisboa, Portugalija; V.Guerra, J.Loureiro, Modelling of the kinetics of vibrationally excited molecules and adsorption in gas discharges. Through exchange V. Guerra visited Institute of Physics belgrade for one month and finalization of results is in progress. Collaboration also involves Faculty of natural sciences in Nis.1.It is interesting to see whether there are possibilities for a bilateral agreement and other options in general. Joint applications to EU projects may be of particular interest.France-Laboratory for physical Spectroscopy, CNRS, Universitete Joseph Fourier Grenoble, N. Sadeghi: measurements of excitation coefficients of interest for plasma propulsion.- There is a possibility of further collaboration on physics of fluoro carbon plasmas, glow discharges and plasma displays.1. Chances of extending current modes of collaboration are small. Program Pavle savic gives only funds for very brief visits and has to be connected to the local funding for extending the visits to at least 2 months.2. Chances of the transfer of some equipment are very good here though there was very little interest from French side to pursue that. yet this option should be open in negotiations.Boulgaria-Institute of the Academy of sciences for solid state pjhysics, dr. R. Djulgerova, application of plasmas for surface diagnostics and development of hollow cathode discharges. One paper published sop far.1.Two programs of collaboration signed through teh Academy of sciences and the program works very well.Mexico-University of Mexico, Prof. J.Urqijo: measurements and interpretation of transport coefficients for electrons and ions.merenje i interpretacija transportnih koeficijenata za elektrone i jone u gasovima.1. Possibilities for scientific collaboration with Mexico should be investigated.
