Université de Strasbourg

2019 Projects

The 12 projects awarded in 2019 involve 15 high-level academics. Some of these researchers come from afar (from Brazil and the United States, for example) and others from the Strasbourg campus. They will all work on their individual projects that are focused on a variety of subjects from all scientific fields, including innovative opto-nano-tweezers, the history of the book, mitochondrial dysfunction, digital archaeology, quantum systems, and new perspectives on neurodegenerative disease.
