Open / close summary

Once again, this year, the researchers at the Paris Brain Institute have met with great success in the generic call for projects of the Agence nationale de la Recherche (ANR, French National Research Agency).


The call for projects of the French National Research Agency funds innovative research projects from all actors of the scientific community, according to four categories: JCJC (Young Researcher), PRC (Collaborative Research Project), PRCE (Collaborative Research Project – Company), PRCI (Collaborative Research Project – International).


19 projects were selected this year, a record rate of 38% for Paris Brain Institute’s researchers.


Congratulations to all the winners for this record success rate, which underlines the quality and innovative nature of the projects conducted at the Institute. This funding is essential for the continuation of our research and is a real gas pedal for the progress of knowledge on the brain and its pathologies.” Prof. Alexis Brice, Director General of the Paris Brain Institute.
