U of T, France’s CNRS to develop joint International Research Centre


The University of Toronto and the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) in France are expanding their existing partnership to create a joint International Research Centre (IRC). The IRC builds upon the seven-year collaboration between the two institutions and provides a hub for further U of T-CNRS collaborations. It will also facilitate global network-building and provide strategic guidance on joint projects. U of T Professor Marc Johnson, who worked has worked on a joint project with CNRS since 2019, said: “This type of partnership is essential for creating the next generation of leaders – these are the people that are going to be leading science and policy and our economy for decades, and we need to invest in them properly.”
