Five outstanding scientists were recognized at the 22nd Irène Joliot-Curie Prize. These awards, awarded by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research with support from the Academies of Sciences and Technology, annually recognize women in the sciences who have had exemplary careers in various aspects.
Among this year’s winners was a Romanian-born researcher who partly studied in France, receiving the Women in Business and Technology Award.
The various Irène Joliot-Curie Prizes and their allocated budgets, created in the early 2000s, contribute to the promotion of women in science, research and technology.Ministry According to the Institute for Higher Education and Research, over 20 years more than 60 women scientists have won awards for their public as well as private research, spanning all scientific fields.
From encryption to microwaves
In this honorable context, First of five awards The verdict was handed down this month by a jury of members of Academy of Sciences and Technology.
female scientist of the year I went to Anne Cantor, Director of Computer Science Research at INRIA. Her work includes: “Various IT Domains, Cryptography, Algorithms, Information Theory, Discrete Mathematics”. According to the department, the bulk of her work involves “Cryptographic algorithms, security analysis of existing ciphers, and creation of new ciphers”.
Women in Business and Technology went to Marilena RadowDirector of Research in Chemical Engineering and the Environment, is also the founder of . microwave technology consulting. First, Marilena Radoiu studied in her native Romania before enrolling in her MBA Fast Track program at Emlyon School of Business. This accelerated program is aimed at experienced directors and executive managers such as:Have a project or are looking for a challenge by learning new skills related to your current business problem”.
Marilena Radoiu’s interest in microwave technology and its practical applications began during her doctoral thesis in Radiochemistry and Nuclear Materials. Her biography emphasizes her passion for “.The development of new and unconventional technologies, such as microwaves, that have the potential to transform many industrial sectors such as petrochemicals, food processing, and health.”.
Emlyon states in the portrait that he began his research activities at the International Institute at the end of the 1990s and quickly gained attention thanks to his publications. The school added:Her strength is business vision, she does not remain confined to the laboratory”. As pragmatic as ever, researchers have joined the private sector.
From mathematics to chemistry to the solar system
This year, the Irène Joliot-Curie Prize has evolved, awarding two major prizes and not just one. three young women learning science as young female scientist.
The winners are:
- Virginie Galland Erlacher, an engineer at the Polytechnic University, she pursues research and teaches at the Institut National École des Ponts et Chaussées, Ceramics. Her research isHelps find solutions to real industrial problemsfocus on “”Development of new numerical methods and mathematical analysis” in the fields of materials science, quantum chemistry, and molecular dynamics.
- Claire de March, He is an organic chemistry researcher at CNRS, and his research isUnderstanding the complexity of odor perception at the molecular level using an interdisciplinary approach including aroma science, sensory analysis, computational chemistry, cell biology, and biochemistry.”.
- Laurette PianiCNRS Geology and Cosmochemistry Researcher at the Center for Petrology and Geochemistry Research in Nancy (CNRS/University of Lorraine).Origin and evolution of volatile elements in the young solar system”. This research led her to work at Hokkaido University in Japan as part of her career.
Another new thing this year is of Special Award (Special Award) This award is given to female researchers who celebrate their careers in science and their commitment to a ‘great cause.’ January next year.
This award is trulySelection process different from previous years”. Ministry The Faculty of Higher Education and Research will be responsible for the creation and organization of the Candidate Selection Jury. Special emphasis on science mentoring of (usually young) women in the sciences.. The deadline to become a candidate is November 30, 2023.
