Antoine Petit proposed for the presidency of the CNRS

Institutional matters

The President of the French Republic proposes the reappointment of Antoine Petit as Chairman and CEO of the CNRS for a second term. As this appointment requires approval from Parliament, Antoine Petit will soon be heard by the relevant standing committees of the National Assembly and the Senate.

Since the current mandate of Antoine Petit, CEO of the CNRS since 2018, ends on January 24, 2022, he will assume the role of interim Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the organization from January 25, 2022 and will carry out all the duties inherent to this position.
