CERN will continue to cooperate with Russian scientists working in institutes not based in Russia

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) will continue cooperation with Russian scientists working in institutes not based in Russia. The agreement on joint work will not continue only with Russian institutes, reports RIA Novosti.

This was stated by the official representative of the organization, Arnaud Marsolier. He previously reported that as of November 30, 2024, CERN will cease cooperation with approximately 500 specialists related to Russia.

Marsolye noted that the organization will continue to work together with scientists from Russia who work outside the country. At the same time, he did not explain how many Russian experts will continue cooperation with CERN and whether the agreement with domestic institutes can be renewed.

In addition, Marsolier did not specify whether specialists from Russian institutes will be able to access the results of their experiments conducted before the expiration of the agreement. It is now known that graduate students writing theses will retain access to the data and will be allowed to come to CERN.

It became known on March 19 that CERN’s cooperation with Russian institutes was terminated. Scientists called such measures a blow to the Russian school of particle physics.

Russia was deprived of observer status at CERN after February 24, 2022. In the summer of the same year, the CERN board decided not to extend the cooperation agreement with Russia and Belarus after the agreement expires in 2024.
