The Academic influence website recently published a list of the 10 most influential scientists for their exciting and innovative contributions to the study of Earth sciences. Among them is Isabelle Daniel, a former student of the ENS de Lyon and member of the Laboratory of geology of Lyon.
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions support researchers at all stages of their careers, regardless of age and nationality. Researchers working across all disciplines are eligible for funding. The MSCA also support cooperation between industry and academia and innovative training to enhance employability and career development.
As temperature records have continuously been broken all over the world, many of us scientist had to endure extreme conditions in our overheated offices. Climate change is happening, and faster than we’d like to think, but how does this play a role in the scientific community? Geodynamicist Nicolas Coltice - former doctoral student at the ENS de Lyon, professor at the UCBL at the LGL-TPE until 2018 and currently professor at the ENS de Paris - brings elements for reflection.
Cathy Quantin-Nataf, Gilles Dromart and Gilles Montagnac of the Laboratoire de Géologie de Lyon (LGL-TPE) are members of a research team developing one of the instruments that will go aboard the rover of the Mars 2020 Mission: the SuperCam.
Nadège Hilairet, former student at the ENS de Lyon and PhD at the Geology Laboratory of Lyon - Earth, Planets, Environment, now working at Université de Lille, received the 2019 Research Excellence Award of the European Mineralogical Union (EMU).
The first Nemmers Prize in Earth Sciences is awarded in 2018 to Francis Albarède, Emeritus Professor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, for his fundamental applications of geochemistry to earth sciences.
