Launch of the call "Hurricanes 2017" - Disaster, Risk and Resilience

Last August and September 2017 was marked with unprecedented extreme weather events made of a succession of extreme power hurricanes especially in the Lesser Antilles and the Gulf of Mexico (Irma, Jose, Maria, Harvey). In the face of these sadly extra-ordinary events, the French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation has decided to commit and launch, with the National Research Agency (ANR), a call for research projects on these phenomena and their environmental and social consequences.

ANR’s Annual Report 2015

ANR’s Annual Report underlines the Agency’s main achievements of 2015 and highlights its commitment towards research. The report is a reflect of the diversity of our missions and it underlines the results of the projects funded by ANR, showcasing the value of project-based funding.

With almost 10 years behind it, the Agency is entering into a new phase of maturity. Its core activity is still the funding of project-based research. But it is constantly evolving to improve the service rendered to the research communities as a whole and to fulfil, always to the best possible extent, the duties entrusted to it.

This year there is a new leaflet “ANR in 10 figures” joined with the report. It gives a peek of the key indicators of ANR since 10 years and during 2015.
