Biographical history

EIROforum was created in 2001 by seven European research organisations: the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organisation for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere (ESO), the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) and the European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA). EIRO stands for European Intergovernmental Research Organisation.

Following initial discussions 2000 and 2001, EIROforum was formally established by the signing of the EIROforum Charter was signed in Brussels (BE) on 2002-11-12.

The European XFEL Free-Electron Laser Facility (European XFEL) joined EIROforum on 2010-11-08, becoming its eighth member.

EFDA-JET was succeeded in EIROforum by EUROfusion in 2014.

EIROforum is governed by the EIROforum Council, which is comprised of the leaders of the member organisations. One of these leaders is the chair of EIROforum for one year, on a rotational presidency, from 1 July annually. The EIROforum Council meets twice per year, once in Brussels (BE) and once at the institute of that year’s chair.
