On the occasion of the opening event of the Mexican-German “Nation Years” 2016/2017 hosted by the Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto and the Federal President Joachim Gauck on 11th April 2016 in Berlin, the Research and Advanced Studies Center (CINVESTAV) in Mexico City and the FAIR GmbH in Darmstadt have concluded a cooperation agreement. The General Director of CINVESTAV, Dr. José Mustre de León, and the Scientific Director of FAIR, Professor Boris Sharkov, signed the so called memorandum of understanding in the afternoon of 11th April attended by the Mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs Claudia Ruíz Massieu in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Berlin.


In the memorandum FAIR and CINVESTAV declare their intention to further the exchange of scientists between both institutions and to implement joint research and development activities relating to the research facilities planned at FAIR. Thus, technical innovations and socio-economic developments on the basis of equality and for joint benefit are to be promoted beyond research.
