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.
