Franke, together with researchers from CONICET, participated in a workshop on biomedicine in China

Within the framework of the Joint Center for Science and Technology (CONICET-CAS) and at the invitation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), a delegation from the National Council for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICET) headed by the President of the Council I. Franchi participated in a biomedical workshop focusing on neuroscience and infectious diseases where Researchers from the Council participated with colleagues from CAS.

During the opening, Franchi spoke about the Council’s guiding principles, how to integrate the organization, and reviewed the cooperation between the Council and China in the field of science and technology. “CONICET has an important history of cooperation with China in large-scale joint projects such as the CART radio telescope project, joint scientific publications and bilateral calls. A related initiative that brings us together in Shanghai is the National Bilateral Center established in 2019 between CONICET and CAS in order to strengthen the cooperation of communities Scientific topics of common interest such as climate change, environmental sciences, earth sciences, atmosphere, astronomy, and biomedicine.”

In addition, Franchi highlighted the joint work between the Council and CAS to implement the first workshop in biomedicine, and the participation of CONICET researchers specialized in neuroscience and infectious diseases: “The innovation process is an area of ​​utmost importance for the exchange of mutually successful experiences in the development paths of our societies.” He added: “I am confident that cooperation will continue to strengthen because the will of our academic and scientific communities in both countries to continue on this common path is more than clear.”
