Publishing date:February 28, 2019
Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 February in Canberra, France and Australia held ministerial-level meetings on science and innovation in the presence of France’s Minister for Higher Education, Research and Innovation Frédérique Vidal and the heads of the French national scientific research centre CNRS, the French national institute for health and medical research INSERM, the French national research agency ANR and CNES, paving the way for future research cooperation between the two nations. On the sidelines of these meetings and accompanied by Frédérique Vidal, CNES President Jean-Yves Le Gall signed three partnership agreements in the fields of climate change, innovation and human spaceflight with Australia’s top research organizations. These agreements follow on from the signature in 2018 of a strategic partnership accord between CNES and the Australian Space Agency (ASA) that made France the newly formed agency’s first international partner.
