You are here
We welcome you to cnrsnews.fr, the fully interactive and updated online news site of the French National Center for Scientific Research, one of the world’s leading science agencies.
Its objective is three-fold: showcase the latest scientific results (over 35,000 publications a year) from our more than 1000 laboratories; support the efforts of our international offices, which continue to secure strong partnerships with high-caliber scientific institutions in all four corners of the world; and more generally, disseminate knowledge to the public and promote French research abroad.
Accessible on all platforms, cnrsnews.fr targets the widest possible audience: all content, articles, in-depth features, interviews, special reports, reports, opinion pieces, live updates but also videos image galleries can be read, shared, and commented on social media. This website, which replaces the print and online version of CNRS International Magazine (archives here), is specifically tailored for an international audience and is the English counterpart of the French website lejournal.cnrs.fr.
We are conscious that research is increasingly specialized and that results need to be put in a more global context. With particular emphasis on the emerging sciences and by giving pride of place to images, this website will help preserve the capacity for wonder and curiosity that drive our scientists.
We thank you for your support, your feedback, and above all, your commitment to science and unfailing interest in research carried out here at the CNRS and across the world.
Director of the CNRS Communications Department
