Spain joins SCOAP3

Share this on social media:

The Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation has expressed its interest in joining SCOAP3. It will be responsible for the contribution of Spain to the open-access, high-energy physics consortium.

The addition of Spain brings the SCOAP3 membership to 20 countries in Europe, Australasia and the Middle East. A large number of leading US libraries and CERN, the international high-energy physics organisation, are also involved in the consortium. The partners have now collectively pledged 53 per cent of the SCOAP3 budget envelope of 10 million euros/year.
