Air Liquide and CNRS have announced the renewal of their framework agreement for cooperation and research, for a period of five years.

The agreement extends and strengthens the partnership agreement signed in 2002, which supported many collaborative projects between Air Liquide and CNRS.

More than 70 CNRS laboratories all over France have already established close ties with Air Liquide, participating in scientific projects that range from plasma physics, to biomass valorisation, physics instrumentation, digital simulation, renewable energies and healthcare.

For Air Liquide, the company explains that the signing of this cooperation and research agreement marks a new step in this collaboration with the CNRS, an ‘excellent long-term partner’.

These links, forged over several years and renewed today, allow Air Liquide to share know-how and scientific knowledge at the highest level, which is critical for opening new territories. This partnership strengthens Air Liquide’s engagement within France’s innovation ecosystem.

The public-private partnership will intensify, through collaborative exchanges, research efforts to foster innovation and meet the great industrial challenges of tomorrow.
