A tireless promoter of the usefulness and beauty of mathematics, Étienne Ghys is one of the four recipients of this distinction created by the CNRS a year ago, to promote scientific mediation activities.
Each year, the CNRS medals celebrate the researchers and officials for their outstanding contributions to the organisation’s vitality and reputation.

- The silver medal is awarded, as their careers take off, to researchers who are already recognised at the national and international levels.
- The bronze medal is given in recognition of the initial work of a promising researcher in their field.
