Israel joins CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research

On September 16th, Israel signed an agreement in Geneva with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, becoming an associate member of the organization, in preparation for its acceptance as a full member. Ambassador Aharon Leshno-Yaar, Permanent Representative of Israel to the UN Office and other International Organizations in Geneva, signed the agreement on behalf of the Government of Israel. The agreement must now be ratified by the Knesset. “It is a vital part of our mission to build bridges between nations. This agreement enriches us scientifically, and is an important step in that direction,” said CERN Director General Rolf Heuer. “I am very pleased that CERN’s relationship with Israel is moving to a higher level.”
