The Parties recognize that cooperation is a matter of working together toward common goals of mutual interest, not merely cooperative financing or sharing of research and education activities. Each party agrees to contribute to planning, conducting, and implementing research and education projects as described in this agreement and to furnish such facilities and funds for particular projects as agreed to within the parameters of this MOU. It is also recognized that successful cooperation occurs only through mutual understanding and efficient administration of the cooperative programs. Nothing in this broad understanding is to be construed as interfering in any way with the basic responsibilities, authorities, and policies of any of the Parties’ members for independent action.
