Memorandum of Understanding

Collaboration with WLCG is typically formalised through negotiating and signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

MoUs put in place formal partnerships, describing the legal framework and agreements for involvement in WLCG, plus the annexes which are regularly updated according to pledges delivered by the collaborating institutions.

If you wish to register a new Federation, then your institute/national funding agency will be required to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with WLCG, to set up the framework of agreements regarding resources and services you will provide.

You should contact whichever LHC experiment(s) you wish to support to discuss their resource requirements and your contribution. if you need contact names to do this please contact

As soon as the MoU is signed by both yourselves and CERN/WLCG, your site(s) will be added to the WLCG monitoring tools, accounting and reliability/availability reports.
