Cern strengthens ties with Lithuania

Lithuania is set to become an associate member of Cern, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

Cern’s director general, Fabiola Gianotti, and Lithuania’s minister of foreign affairs, Linas Linkevičius, signed an agreement admitting Lithuania as an associate member to the organisation on 27 June.

Lithuania has been contributing to Cern’s work on the Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator—specifically its Compact Muon Solenoid general-purpose detector—since 2007. Associate membership will enable the country to take part in meetings of Cern’s council and of its finance and scientific policy committees.
