Local support for research

The Young Researcher Prize aims to promote the integrity and societal involvement of basic and applied research in the laboratories of the Université de Lyon.
To express its interest in young researchers, the Métropole de Lyon and the City of Lyon are awarding three prizes in the following three main fields:

  1. Exact Sciences
  2. Health and Life Sciences
  3. Human and Social Sciences

The three prizes of €5,000 each will reward the scientific quality of the post-doctoral work, but also the investment of the applicants in the dissemination of scientific culture and the efforts of transmission of research to civil society.

And new for 2024: a “Jury’s Favorite – Societal Issues and Challenges” Prize, also worth €5,000, will be awarded by the jury to a candidate whose research is particularly innovative and promising, while addressing the societal issues and challenges of major transitions (in the broadest sense: technological, economic, environmental, socio-cultural, institutional, etc.). It is based on the 3 major themes of excellence identified above.
