The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
An Agreement with the University of Skopje in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia was signed in 1990, and scientific contacts have developed recently. The country is a member of SEEGrid, and a Minister visited CERN in late 2008. The Government has upgraded the previous Agreement to an International Co-operation Agreement, which was signed by the Prime Minister during a visit to CERN in 2009. Within the framework of this agreement, students and high-school teachers are being sent to CERN for training, and participation in antiproton and LHC experiments are envisaged.
