The Diderot Innovation Prize 2016 was attributed in the Science category to Dr. P. LAINÉ, Dr. L. POULARD and Dr. G. DUPEYRE, all three involved in the TOR project (acronym of “Tunable Organic reflectors”). This prize aimed at rewarding the promising results of research on the design of “New molecular materials based on organic superchromophores for optics and (nano)photonics”.
The ceremony, held in the presence of Christine Clerici, President of Paris Diderot University, was an opportunity to recall the role of SATT in the detection and support of projects and to contribute to the creation of a community of researchers motivated by innovation.
As part of the Diderot Innovation Prize 2016, 31 projects were submitted in the University’s three major research fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, Health and Sciences. Relaunched in December 2015 after three editions in 2006, 2007 and 2009, this prize, which was supported by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, was a great success within the scientific community of the institution.
