Yann Pierre Donon became one of the first foreign recipients of an international PhD degree from a leading Russian university.

As a result, he successfully defended his dissertation online in September 2020, and this month he was awarded a diploma in-person.

Thanks to his initiative, a joint project of Samara University and CERN OpenLab was launched under the European Organization for Nuclear Research partnership programme. SmartLINAC is a new linear accelerator control system that will make LINAC installations more affordable and safe for a wide range of organizations, including medical and industrial.
