France’s National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) has a strong network of international collaborations around the world through its Unités Mixtes Internationales (UMI). The workshop will provide an opportunity for all the UMI of North America to meet and bring together their research networks in order to tackle the grand challenge of climate change and sustainable development.
This session celebrates the Georgia Tech-CNRS international research partnership (Unités Mixte Internationales – UMI 2958) within the framework of CNRS’s 80th anniversary. Started in 2006 on the Georgia Tech – Lorraine campus in Metz, France, the UMI has grown tremendously and made some important scienti c contributions.
