President of Israel and Governor General of Canada Preside over the Signing
of a Formal Accord between the Royal Society of Canada and the Israel
Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

The President of Israel, Shimon Peres, and His Excellency the Governor
General, David Lloyd Johnston, presided over a signing ceremony at Rideau
Hall to establish a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Royal
Society of Canada (RSC) and the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities
(IASH).

At the signing ceremony, President Prof. Yolande Grisé of the Royal Society
of Canada and President Ruth Arnon of the Israel Academy of Sciences and
Humanities celebrated the immediate action being taken in the spirit of the
understanding.

“This agreement with the Israel Academy, as well as the upcoming meeting of
scientists in the field of brain research, signal that our two institutions
believe in the principles of cooperation, but also in the necessity to see
programmes arise from those principles immediately” said President Yolande
Grisé of the RSC. “In its 130th year, the RSC is honored to undertake this
innovative project with our esteemed colleagues in Israel, whose
distinguished academicians are active partners in living the ideals of
knowledge, promotion of research, and cooperative projects espoused by
national academies around the world.”
