External Contributions and Fundraising

One of the activities of the External Funding Group of CERN (FAP-EF)  is to respond to the increasing demand for the handling of Externally-Funded Projects at CERN. The aim is to effectively and efficiently understand business opportunities between a solicited organisation, a collaboration, a company, a trust, a foundation and/or a private donor and CERN.

This activity is the third pillar within the External Funding Group and is focused on the following domains:

The primary role of the Group is to act as an advisory body for the CERN Departments to ensure the adequate financial implementation of Externally-Funded Projects resulting from Knowledge Transfer, Medical Applications, Partnerships and Fundraising.

Some prerequisites related to Externally-Funded Projects are:

  1. All External Funds are subject to a prior contractual agreement, approved and signed by the CERN Management and endorsed by CERN’s Financial services,
  2. All External Funds are to be used exclusively for professional activities in the framework of  the agreed project and on the CERN premises,
  3. All External Funds are subject to a CERN invoice. Ample information on the invoicing rules and regulations [including the CERN Financial Rules] are available on the CERN Admin e-guide .
