Ika Paul-Pont, guest at the CNRS 80th anniversary panel discussion

Ika Paul-Pont, recently awarded a Bronze Medal by the CNRS for her work with her colleagues on micro-plastics contamination, has been invited to participate in a round table on the state of scientific research in France. This exchange, in the presence of Emmanuel Macron and Frédéric Vidal and animated by Mathieu Vidard, took place during a ceremony that marked the end of a year of festivities around the 80th anniversary of the CNRS. This was an opportunity for the invited scientists to highlight issues at the heart of the functioning of French research.
