An agreement on French-German cooperation in computer science was signed in Nancy on 7 February 2007. The signing ceremony was marked with a one-day scientific seminar at which scientists from the instituties involved presented current research results. This cooperation agreement will allow scientists of the respective institutes to pursue and intensify their cooperations by proposing joint research activities and by exchanging researchers and students. Moreover, it aims at promoting joint proposals for European research programs. Thus the greater border region, including Luxemburg and the regions of Wallonia, the Saar, and Lorraine has the potential of becoming a region of excellence in computer science.
