Description

The General Meeting is a formal body on information exchange, decision and policy making to reach aims and goals of the CBG stated below:

The mission of the CBG is to coordinate policy and actions related to high energy particle physics and accelerator technologies (inter alia big data and computing technologies) within the scientific institutions and universities of the Baltic States and vis a vis CERN.

The main objectives of the CERN Baltic Group are:

  1. Coordination of the Baltic research institutions activities towards CERN and related Collaborations/Experiments;
  2. Strengthening and development of Baltic High Energy Physics community;
  3. Foster cooperation between CERN and local industry in the Baltic States and generate new opportunities via joint research projects and contacts;
  4. Development of the Baltic international multidisciplinary masters/doctoral level study programme in High Energy Physics and Accelerator Technologies, and related areas.

The main principles of the CERN Baltic Group are: transparency, honesty, sharing and collaboration.
