The United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, hereinafter referred to as “ARS”, and Region of Eastern Macedonia & Thrace, Komotini, Greece, referred to as “PAMTH”, both of them hereinafter referred to as “the Participants”, hereby affirm their mutual interest in and desire to broaden cooperative research programs and exchanges. The Participants recognize that cooperation is a matter of working together toward common goals of mutual interest, mutual understandings, and efficient administration of cooperative programs. Nothing in this broad understanding is to be construed as interfering in any way with the basic responsibilities and authority of either Participant for independent action. This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) defines in general terms the basis on which the Participants intend to cooperate. Individual projects may be developed between the Participants that outline specific research projects. To facilitate the cooperative research effort(s) described herein, each Participant intends to assign such members of its staff to specific projects as may be mutually determined, as well as aid in planning and developing projects of mutual interest.
