Since 2005, ANR has never stopped evolving and reinventing itself to better serve the scientific communities, both academic and industrial.
This year has been one of transformation and consolidation; it will go down in the books as a milestone year for ANR. In 2014, the agency seized the opportunity to carry out an in-depth organisational overhaul, formally introduce a new two-stage selection process as well as create new funding instruments to support a wide array of research in a number of scientific disciplines and themes.
With its 10-year anniversary drawing near, ANR was entrusted with new missions by the French government, further cementing the agency's position in the European and international ecosystem. ANR chairs two European Joint Programming Initiatives (JPI), is hosting the Belmont forum's world secretariat promoting inter-agency action on climate change, and has asserted itself as an outward-looking organisation, a driving force in the European Research Area and a player in scientific policy discussions on the world stage.
Looking back on last year's achievements, Annual Report 2014 shines a light on the role and activities of ANR in all their diversity. It places international activities front and centre and provides an overview of successful scientific endeavours supported by the agency, showcasing the value of project-based funding.
