Institut de France - Académie des Sciences
An Agreement for Scientific Cooperation was signed with the French Academy of Sciences in 1989. Under the agreement, each academy hosts a senior scientist from the other country once every two years.
As part of the strengthening of ties between the academies, there has been a series of bi-national scientific meetings with senior researchers. In May 2013 there was a mathematics workshop in Paris, in March 2014 a physics workshop in Israel and in July 2015 a biology workshop on Chromatin in France.
In June 2018, to mark the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel and as part of the "Israel-France Season" events, the Paris "Nobel Laureates Conference
" took place in Paris. In November 2018, under the same framework, the Academies held a conference in Jerusalem, entitled "Science without Borders.
” The meeting was opened by President of Israel Mr. Reuben (Ruby) Rivlin and French Ambassador to Israel, H.E. Ms. Hélène Le Gal. and led by the president of the Academy, Prof. Nili Cohen, and the then permanent secretary of the French Academy of Sciences Prof. Catherine Bréchignac. Nobel Prize laureates and members of the Israeli and French academies participated in the conference.
