Summary

On 17 and 18 June 2009, in Moscow, The U.S. National Academies and the Russian Academy of Sciences will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the first interacademy agreement on scientific cooperation between the National Academy of Sciences and the Soviet Academy of Sciences. An important goal of this jubilee is to help revitalize bilateral cooperation in science and technology (S&T), which has declined in recent years. The anniversary comes just before President Obama and President Medvedev meet next month in Moscow to continue efforts to reset U.S.-Russian relations on a broad basis.
