Extending Cooperation with India

14 avril 2015

On April 10, 2015 in Paris, the CNRS finalized two scientific cooperation agreements with India, in the presence of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President François Hollande.

In order to achieve the ambitious goal of creating India’s first marine biology institute of international standard, the Indian Ministry of Science and Technology’s Department of Biotechnology (DBT) has called upon the know-how of the CNRS and Université Pierre-et-Marie Curie. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the three parties to monitor bilateral exchanges concerning the project.

On this occasion, the CNRS also renewed its cooperation agreement with the Indian Department of Science and Technology—also under the auspices of the Ministry of Science and Technology—and is discussing new collaboration projects, which could come to fruition over the next few months.
