Members of the French-American scientific community who have established lasting bilateral relationships are uniquely positioned to promote stronger French-American scientific collaborations. They have the mutual desire to increase the sharing of knowledge and to reinforce international alliances.
Through the annual “Networking Event in Science and Technology” (NEST), the Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in Washington, DC seeks to bring together and honor these scientific alumni who are familiar with research in both France and the United States. The members of this community serve as true scientific ambassadors between our two countries.
NEST is above all a convivial occasion to meet and exchange information among researchers, entrepreneurs and decision makers. It is also an opportunity for these alumni to come together for a high-level scientific event.
The first NEST event will also honor biomedical research as it celebrates the 50th anniversary of Inserm, the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research, and in particular, its partners in the United States.
