A Co-operation agreement between CERN and the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología del Peru (CONCYTEC) concerning the further development of scientific and technical co-operation in the research projects of CERN was signed in 1993.

Peru took part in programmes such as HELEN, EELA and EELA-2 which enabled some young Peruvian scientists to come to CERN for training and to make direct contacts. These exchanges led a Peruvian team from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Peru (PUCP) to joinALICE in 2010.

The 7th CERN – Latin American School of High-Energy Physics Physics took place in Arequipa (Peru) in 2013.
