The jury has highlighted the high quality of the presentations made this year and would like to thank all the participants for their work.

A new doctoral competition will be organized by SCAI in 2022.



Within the framework of the Institutes and Initiatives of the Sorbonne University Alliance (ASU), a campaign to award doctoral contracts financed by the Initiative of Excellence (Idex) has been launched in January 2021. The Sorbonne University Alliance promotes interdisciplinary research and the structuring of training through research with the Sorbonne University Institutes, to which structuring initiatives are added. Institutes and Initiatives thus unite the communities of researchers within the Alliance around a common issue.
