Exhibition - Filming the War: the Soviets and the Holocaust

The political role played by cinema during the Second World War is an acknowledged fact. There is no shortage of research into the productions of Hollywood, Great Britain and France during that period, but our knowledge of Soviet cinema is less well documented. Funded by ANR since 2013, the CINESOV project has set itself the goal of exploring the Soviet cinematographic policy and its implications, both economic and social, in Russia at war (1939-1949). An exhibition entitled "Filming the War – The Soviets and the Holocaust, 1941-1946", currently showing at the Shoah Memorial in Paris until 27th September 2015, fits into this perspective.

SUBGLACIOR: revolutionising paleoclimatology with a new type of probe

Design, build and deploy a new type of in-situ ice-corer probe in the Antarctic in order to record, within a single season, the oldest available data on the earth’s climate sourced from natural ice that formed over a million years ago. These are the goals of the SUBGLACIOR project developed since 2011 and notably supported by the French National Research Agency under the "Blanc" funding programme.

Carnot Institutes: a new labelling wave due shortly

The third wave of Carnot Institute labelling is to be launched in 2016. In 2013, Arnaud Montebourg – who was then French Minister for Productive Recovery – and Geneviève Fioraso, currently Secretary of State for Higher Education and Research, announced the setting up of a commission tasked with proposing developments to the system. The aim was to give new impetus to the institutes to enable them to make a "decisive" contribution to the "recovery of the country". This commission, baptised the "Carnot 3.0 Commission", submitted its recommendations to the Secretary of State on 21st January 2015.
