One of the main directions of the research program at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna is the relativistic nuclear and spin physics. The present basic facility for this research is the 6 A GeV superconducting synchrotron—Nuclotron. In the coming years, the new JINR flagship program assumes the experimental study of hot and dense strongly interacting QCD matter and polarization phenomena at the new JINR facility. This goal is proposed to be reached by (i) development of the existing Nuclotron accelerator facility as a basis for generation of intense beams over atomic mass range from protons to uranium and light polarized ions, (ii) design and construction of the Nuclotron‐based Heavy Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) with the maximum nucleon‐nucleon center‐of‐mass energy of and averaged luminosity for collisions, and (iii) design and construction of the Multipurpose Particle Detector (MPD) and Spin Physics Detector (SPD) at intersecting beams. Realization of the project will lead to unique conditions for research activity of the world community.
