On November 20, the Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in the United States organized an exclusive webinar for members of the network of French scientists based in the United States. The event welcomed CNRS CEO Antoine Petit as guest of honor, who shared his views on CNRS’s international collaboration and partnerships with the private sector. Participants had the opportunity to ask their questions during an interactive session, making this exchange a stimulating moment for the French scientific community.

As Europe’s largest research organization, the CNRS has a key responsibility in developing a global vision of science, promoting projects of national, European and international scope, exploring new areas of research, and engaging in major developments such as open science. Antoine Petit’s speech provided a deeper understanding of CNRS strategy, both nationally and internationally, highlighting the presence of hundreds of structured collaborations around the world. He highlighted the attractiveness of CNRS and French research, and presented recruitment opportunities. The meeting also highlighted the role of the CNRS in helping to solve the social challenges of the 21st century, and in providing decision-making support for the political sphere. Finally, Antoine Petit emphasized the crucial importance of CNRS partnerships with the private sector (joint laboratories with companies, creation of start-ups and support for innovation via CNRS Innovation), underlining the need to strengthen the frameworks linking scientific and technological research to commercial development.
