Winners of the MERS 2021 Carnot Institute's Internal Resourcing Call for Projects

Each Carnot labelled institute is allocated each year by the ANR a subsidy based on its contractual research turnover.

The subsidy allows financing projects and actions aiming at developing the scientific and technological resourcing of Carnot institutes, their professionalization, the development of socio-economic partnerships and the integration to the Carnot network.

The resourcing projects concern any action carried out by a Carnot institute in order to maintain or develop its scientific lead on a given theme or subject compared to the industrial state of the art.

This call for projects is the repayment of a part of the subsidy allocated to the Carnot MERS 2021 revenues, this repayment is used to finance projects on scientific locks or proofs of concept to contribute to a technological prospective.

The projects should meet the following criteria:
  • Address one of the 3 areas of iC MERS expertise: Safe, Smart and Sustainable Marine Industry
  • To answer the criteria of scientific quality, application potential and feasibility.

The selection committee, when announcing the results, underlined the quality of the projects submitted. In addition to the thirteen projects submitted in 2021, two projects submitted in 2020 have been reinstated among the projects to be evaluated. These are two highly ranked projects that could not be selected last year due to lack of funding.
