CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, and the European Commission have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which aims to enhance the long-standing partnership between the two organisations. The MoU will provide a structured framework for cooperation across a broad range of issues of common interest, with emphasis on consolidating and further developing the European Research Area and facilitating the implementation of the European Strategy for Particle Physics, as defined by the CERN Council.
The MoU provides for the European Commission and CERN to cooperate in order to consolidate and further develop the European Research Area in all its important dimensions, as well as in the following up and implementation of the European Strategy for Particle Physics as defined by the CERN Council. Cooperation between the two sides will be based on areas of common interest, with due regard to their respective competences, institutional settings and operational frameworks. The MoU also provides for both organisations to consult and exchange information on issues of mutual interest.
The two sides agree that there exists an enormous potential for cooperation in a remarkably broad range of areas, such as research programming, training and mobility of researchers, science education, open publishing, technology transfer, innovation, building next generation infrastructures (including e-infrastructures) and global scientific cooperation.
