INL International legal framework, an unique singularity

The preparation of the legal framework and governance structure for the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is not an easy process. I am sure that many of you are wondering what are the benefits and drawbacks of such a decision. At the INL, we are still working in this critical issue.

Initially, the preparation of the INL international legal framework was asked to Jean-Marie Dufour, then Professor at the Law School of the University of Geneva and President of the Geneva International Academic Network. Professor Dufour was a legal advisor of CERN —European Organization for Nuclear Research at Geneva, Switzerland, founded in 1956, and was involved in the creation of the main international research laboratories in Europe, namely ESO —European Southern Observatory with headquarters at Garching, Germany that also houses the joint ESO/ESA European Coordination Facility for the Hubble Space Telescope and with facilities also in the La Silla Paranal Observatory in Chile, where it operates the VLT —Very Large Telescope and the VLTI —Very Large Telescope Interferometer, created in 1962,. Besides these scientific international organizations, Professor Dufour was involved in the creation of the EMBL —European Molecular Biology of Laboratory at Heildelberg, inaugurated in1978, and ESRF —European Synchrotron Radiation Facility at Grenoble, France, created in 1988.

Additionally, the analysis of the main Administrative Issues was requested to Mr. Helmut Krech. Mr. Helmut Krech is Head of Administration of the ESRF —European Synchrotron Radiation Facility at Grenoble, France, which was created in 1988.

We will give you more information about this point in following posts
