Boris Viktorovych Grinyov (Ukrainian: Борис Вікторович Гриньов) (born April 1, 1956 in Kharkov, USSR) is a Ukrainian scientist, member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NAS) and currently First Deputy Head of the State Agency for Science, Innovation and Informatization of Ukraine.


Boris Grinyov obtained a Specialist degree in Physics from Kharkiv University in 1978. He obtained his Candidate Dissertation in Physics and Mathematics in 1985 from Donetsk National University under the supervision of Volodymyr Semynozhenko, “On the theory of the normal and ferromagnetic superconductors in the strong electromagnetic fields”.

In 1987 he started working at the Institute for Single Crystals (ISC) in Kharkov, Ukraine. There he completed his Doctoral Dissertation in Technical Sciences on the subject of “Ionization detectors for extreme conditions” in 1993. From 1996 to 2002 he was director of the ISC. In 2001 he created the Institute for Scintillation Materials within the structure of the NAS of Ukraine and was its director from 2002 to 2011.

Since July 2010 he is the First Deputy Head of the State Agency on Science, Innovation and Informatization of Ukraine.

From 1997 to 2003 and since 2010, he represents Ukraine in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, Russia. In 2008 he was elected a Member of the JINR Scientific Council.

Since 2007 he has been the Head of Department of Crystal Physics at Kharkiv National University. In 2010 Boris Grinyov became a Member of the Presidium of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine.

Scientific work[edit]

The scientific activities of Boris Grinyov center on the study of the fundamental properties of scintillation materials: searching for new scintillators, and developing instruments and devices based on scintillators for applications in various fields ranging from high energy physics (the BaBar, Belle and Alice experiments and the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, among others) to medical devices.

Among the scientific publications of Boris Grinyov are 14 monographs, over 600 scientific publications, 115 patents. Under his direction seven masters and five doctoral dissertations were performed. He also published several tutorials and a textbook for higher mathematics.

Honors and awards[edit]

In 1996 Boris Grinyov was one of the recipients of the National Award of Ukraine in Science and Technology (uk) for “Development of technology for industrial production of large scintillation crystals for various applications”. He was awarded an Order of merit of the third degree in 2006 and the second degree in 2009. He received the G. V. Kurdyumov award of the NAS of Ukraine in 2006 and its V. I. Trefilov Award in 2009. In 2008 he was awarded a Honorary Doctorate of Science by Hanyang University (Seoul, South Korea) for his contribution in establishing scientific and technical cooperation between Ukraine and South Korea.

Private life[edit]

Married, has two daughters.
