Scientific prizes

    Distinctions and awards rewarding our researchers and students

    CEMEF's research work is regularly singled out for recognition. Each year, students and researchers receive awards from learned societies, congresses or civil society.

    We are proud of our laureates and the scientific prizes that reward them, without reservation. They undeniably confirm  the vitality of our research activities. More specifically, they are a clear recognition of the quality of our research. In short, we are pleased to congratulate all our awardees and we thank them for the work they accomplish.

    Here after is a presentation of the latest award-winners.
