U.S.-France Science and Technology Cooperation


The fifth U.S.-France Joint Committee Meeting on Science and Technology Cooperation (JCM) convened on March 9 in Paris, France. The JCM provides an opportunity to exchange views on some of the most important science and technology endeavors in our countries, and to prioritize future collaboration between the United States and France.

French and U.S. government agencies and research organizations at the fifth JCM discussed information technology, energy and the environment, health science, and science and research integrity. Both countries endorsed continued research cooperation, including initiatives to increase collaboration in artificial intelligence, quantum technologies, advanced energy technologies and clean energy, ocean observation and exploration, and cancer research. Current successful projects were also reviewed, including the renewal of the international joint research unit between the Georgia Institute of Technology and the French National Center for Scientific Research.
