CNRS gold medal

  (Redirected from CNRS Gold medal)

The CNRS gold medal is the highest scientific research award in France. It is presented annually by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and was first awarded in 1954. Moreover, silver medals are given to researchers for originality, quality, and importance, while bronze medals recognize initial fruitful results.[a]

Gold medal recipientsEdit
