Cooperation agrements

From Russia....
Eight cooperation agreements were signed between CNRS and various Russian research organizations on December 4th, 2007, at the French embassy in Moscow.
The new research projects cover different fields, such as the environment (the bio-geo-chemical cycle of carbon in humid areas of Western Siberia), physics (lasers, optical information systems, and nanotechnologies; valuable semi-conductors for medical imagery and telecommunications), chemistry (molecular separation by membranes) and information and communication sciences and technology. In the humanities and social sciences, three projects will bring together French, Russian, and Central European researchers: (1) prehistoric use of osseous materials; (2) application of chemical and molecular genetics analyses to the study of the Russian retreat of Napoleon’s Army; and (3) nomadism among contemporary Turco-Mongol societies in Siberia.

CNRS has reinforced its scientific cooperation with two South American countries: Argentina and Chile.
The Memorandum of Understanding signed in Santiago, Chile, on December 11th between CNRS and CONICYT (Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica) includes joint plans for 2008-2012 for the development of advanced training in fields like astronomy, marine biology, and seismology.
The Cooperation Agreement signed in Buenos Aires on December 14th between CNRS and CONICET (Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas) replaces the previous agreement which dates back to 1985. It includes CNRS’ tools for international cooperation as well as intellectual property clauses.
