Honors and awards

Congratulations to Olga, Pauline, Laurie-Anne and Aline

More than 1,000 young female scientists applied this year for the French L’Oréal-UNESCO grants “for Women and for Science” in 2016. The jury, led by Prof. Bernard Meunier, head of the Academy of Sciences, selected 30 of them across various disciplines – including biology, mathematics, chemistry and electronics. Four of these scientists are from the ENS de Lyon.
Our warmest congratulations to:

  • Olga Romaskevich, mathematician, doctoral student at the UMPA and at Moscow’s Higher School of Economics.
  • Pauline Nauroy, biologist, doctoral student at the Institute of Functional Genomics of Lyon (IGFL).
  • Laurie-Anne Sapey Triomphe, a Normalienne from the ENS de Lyon. The school is proud to count her among its alumni. She is currently a doctoral candidate at Lyon 1 University.
  • Aline Muyle, alumni of the ENS de Lyon in biology. She is currently a post-doctoral student at the LBBE.

Attribution criteria for the L'Oréal "Young Talent" grants

  • Scientific excellence of the research project
  • Quality of the application filed
  • Ability to communicate and promote sciences

These 30 young women who will shape tomorrow’s science all have an excellent academic level and very original scientific projects, but they also share a common desire to communicate their passion.
Each will be awarded a €15,000 grant for doctoral students and €20,000 for postdoctoral students, to enable them to carry out their scientific projects.
