The results of the 2017 ERC starting grant have been published (erc.europa.eu/sites/default/files/document/file/erc_2017_stg_results_pe.pdf).
Dr Benedetta Franzelli has obtained one of these very prestigious awards. Dr Franzelli received a PhD from CERFACS in the field of combustion in 2011. She is working now as CNRS researcher, for the EM2C laboratory (Centralesupelec), where her ERC grant will allow her to study soot formation in flames. This is the first time that a CERFACS PhD student receives such a prestigious award.
