In the context of the visit of a Delegation of the National Institute of Nuclear and Particular Physics (IN2P3) to Washington DC area, where they met with the Department of Energy (DOE) and visited the Jefferson Laboratory, Reynald PAIN, IN2P3 Director, and Nigel LOCKYER, Fermilab Director, signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between the two institutions (CRADA).

Oriented towards basic research activities and projects, the CRADA establishes a framework for, among others, visits and exchanges of scientists, engineers and experts, sharing of information, organization of seminars, workshops and meetings, and access to equipment, tools, materials and most of all, to Fermilab facility.

With a 10-year validity, renewable by tacit agreement, the CRADA aims at strengthening student mobility : a goal of 5 students on average per year has been set.

Although the cooperation themes have not been clearly defined yet, it is expected that the wide range of the activities will focus on two major international projects - the Long Base Neutrino Facility (LBNF) and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) - and also on the CMS experience in the LHC.

The signature took place on October 19th 2017 at the Embassy of France, in the presence of Minh-Hà PHAM, French Counselor for Science and Technology, and DOE representatives including Jim SIEGRIST, Deputy Director of the High Energy Physics Division.
