Colloque COFUSI commémoratif du centenaire

2019 is the centenary year of IUBS, IUA, IUPAC, IUGG and URSI whose first presidents were all French and members of the Académie des sciences. The COFUSI organized an interdisciplinary colloquium at the Academy.

Yvon Le Maho was the representative of IUBS and made a presentation on “Nature as a source of biomedical innovation”
