The main result is that only a minuscule part of the more than 720 sources detected by INTEGRAL and the population of 205 Fermi LAT sources are detected in both spectral regimes. This is in spite of the mCrab INTEGRAL sensitivity for both galactic and extragalactic sources and the breakthrough, in terms of sensitivity, achieved by Fermi at MeV-GeV energies. The majority of the 14 Fermi LAT sources clearly detected in the fourth INTEGRAL/IBIS catalog are optically identified active galactic nuclei (10) complemented by two isolated pulsars (Crab and Vela) and two high-mass X-ray binaries (LS I +61 303 and LS 5039). Two more possible associations have been found: one is 0FGL J1045.6-5937, possibly the counterpart at high energy of the massive colliding wind binary system Eta Carinae, discovered to be a soft gamma ray emitter by recent INTEGRAL observations and 0FGL J1746.0-2900 coincident with IGR J17459-2902, but still not identified with any known object at lower energy. For the remaining 189 Fermi LAT sources no INTEGRAL counterpart was found and we report the 2σ upper limit in the energy band 20-40keV. Description: Recently, INTEGRAL (Winkler et al. 2003A&A...411L...1W) and Swift have been joined in operation by the Fermi gamma-ray satellite launched in 2008 June, providing a coverage of the sky over 10 orders of magnitude in energy, from keV to GeV. Onboard this satellite, the Large Area Telescope (LAT) is an imaging high-energy gamma-ray telescope (20MeV-300GeV). File Summary:
