IFP will be present at the Knowledge Summit 2021 (KS3), a bilateral forum dedicated to scientific and academic cooperation between France and India, from 24 to 26 November 2021 as an online event co-hosted by Savitribai Phule Pune University.

The Knowledge Summit can be a forum which facilitates the meeting of scientific communities, to enable them to develop and highlight their joint work on priority themes, upstream of the CEFIPRA programs. This event is an opportunity for our respective countries to underline the success of our scientific collaboration, to draw some new leads of joint research work and also to discuss and exchange ideas on global challenges that had to be tackled.
