Also, Jacques Martino, recently appointed director of the L'Institut National de Physique Nucléaire et de Physique des Particles (IN2P3), will talk about the future plans for IN2P3.

Background: The Office for Science and Technology, as well as the Office for Higher Education and the CNRS office support co-operative programs between France and the U.S., organizing events, issuing reports and newsletters to the French science and higher education community. Helpful tools, such as the Partner University Fund (PUF program), the Chateaubriand fellowships for co-supervised Ph.D.s, and international laboratories (UMI, LIA) of CNRS and other research institutes, will be described.

IN2P3 is a French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique institute created in 1971. Its purpose is to promote and unite research activities in the various fields of physics.
