NUMBER 2: JUNE 2015
This second SPS newsletter comes out immediately after the LabEx auditions by international committees, organized by the ANR. Together with Marie-Jeanne Sellier (SPS manager) and Patricio Leboeuf (head of research at the Université Paris-Saclay), we presented the goals, actions and results of SPS in the context of Paris-Saclay.
We now expect a feedback of the international committee to take into account their remarks in our strategy. Very briefly, it seems that our actions and academic performance (research and training) have been appreciated, as well as our wish to now focus on aspects related to partnership development and innovation, on one hand, and the preparation of the period following the end of the current project 2020), on the other hand...
