In October 2020, the Pays de la Loire Region entered into a partnership with the ANR. The aim is to develop synergies between regional and national research support mechanisms and to encourage the leadership of research in the Loire region at the local, national and international levels.

On September 23, 2022, the 2023 edition of the ANR Tour made a stop at the Hôtel de Région Pays de la Loire in Nantes. It was an opportunity to meet the project leaders and the research teams they support, including Dr. Elise Chiffoleau at the CR2TI. Researchers were able to discuss their careers. What are their research problems and the questions they raise? What have been the concrete contributions of the partnership between the Pays de la Loire region and the ANR? In what framework have the researchers benefited from this support? Find out more by following this link !
