Distinctions and prizes 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. There is no denying that we are proud of our laureates and the scientific prizes that reward them. Generally speaking, they confirm the vitality of our research activities. More specifically, they are a clear recognition of the quality of our research.
That is why we are pleased to congratulate all our winners for their scientific awards.
On this page, you will find a presentation of our latest awardees.
