The Scientific Year Begins

The 2019 ERC Starting Grant call was aimed at young sesearchers of any nationality with 2-7 years of experience since completion of PhD, a scientific track record showing great promise and an excellent research proposal.

On September 3, 2019, the ERC published the list of recipients. Among the selected laureates from Lyon, two are from laboratories affiliated to ENS de Lyon:

Lucile Savary
