International Organizations

CERN co-operates with many international organizations, principally those working in related scientific areas, and has specific agreements on scientific, technical and training matters with several such organizations. In addition, CERN co-ordinates with other European intergovernmental research organizations, the European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA), the European Molecular Biology laboratory (EMBL), the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Southern Observatory (ESO), the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL) in the framework of EIROforum.
