One of the flagship projects stemming from this Euro-regional collaboration has been the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding for the creation of a cross-border laboratory between the DIPC (Donostia International Physics Center) and the ISM (Institut des sciences moléculaires) focused on theoretical physics and chemistry. This laboratory, called QuantumChemPhys, illustrated the results of one year's work by its initiators Pascal Larregaray and Ricardo Diez and their colleagues. This Memorandum of Understanding formalized the setup of this cross-border laboratory, also accredited by IdEx Bordeaux. This long-term collaboration will continue this year for the development of projects through joint theses and international training programs, within a European framework.
