Accompanied by a delegation of twenty people, including Antoine Petit (President of the CNRS), Yves Levy (INSERM President), Thierry Damerval (ANR President), Vincent Bergé (Director of Fundamental Research CEA), the Minister has moved to all Singapore research strategic points.

The minister’s visit was motivated by a major event for the Franco-Singaporean diplomatic scene : the official launch of the 2018 France-Singapore Innovation Year. The CNRS was at the heart of the event specially with the renewal of MajuLab, ready for 5 new years of research in Singapore.
