MOSCOW, April 16. /TASS/. An agreement on scientific and technological cooperation in high energy physics and other areas of mutual interest between the Russian government and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) was signed by the chief delegates to meeting of the Russia-CERN committee in Geneva on Tuesday, Russia’s Education and Science Ministry has told TASS.
"On April 15-16, 2019 the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) hosted another meeting of the Russia-CERN committee. The chief delegates put their signatures to an agreement on scientific-technological cooperation in the field of high energy physics and other areas of mutual interest between the government of Russia and CERN," the report says.
Russia’s Science and Higher Education Minister Grigory Trubnikov led the Russian delegation at the talks. The host party was represented by CERN leadership under the organization’s Director-General Fabiola Gianotti. The agreement is called to furnish a modern groundwork for wider cooperation between Russia and CERN. A new agreement had to be signed because the previous ones was outdated in some respects.
