The French Académie des Sciences, in a few words

Created by Colbert in 1666, the French Academie des Sciences is an assembly of scientists, chosen among the most distinguished French and foreign specialists. It examines the political, ethical and societal issues surrounding the current and future scientific topics. The Academy reflects, anticipates, explains and pronounces itself, mainly through opinions and recommendations and takes position when necessary. It aims to provide policy makers with a framework of expertise, counsel and alert and more broadly to enlighten the debates and choices of our society. In addition, the French Académie des Sciences supports research, is committed to the quality of science education and promotes scientific life at the international level.
