02/12/2013 Revised Multilateral Agreement for Gaia signed
A revised Multilateral Agreement (MLA) has been signed at the Science Programme Committee meeting, held on 28 November 2013 at ESA Headquarters in Paris, France. The Gaia MLA defines the terms and conditions governing the commitment of each party to Gaia data processing. The revised agreement adds the Archive Access Coordination Unit (CU9) to the Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC). CU9 will be responsible, along with the Gaia Science Operations Centre, for providing a repository for Gaia data products as well as access tools to maximise the scientific exploitation of the Gaia data set. An image of the signatories to the revised MLA is available here.
