The 2016 UnivEarthS Scientific Committee gathered a hundred people on 28 and 29 November in Paris.
During these two days, the leaders of the 19 projects came to present their work and achievements over the past year. The holders of 7 new projects also presented their proposals to the members of the scientific council and to the assembly.
Stavros Katsanevas, director of the APC laboratory and co-director of Labex UnivEarthS, presented the progress and general situation of UnivEarthS over the year and the outlook for 2017.
Currently, UnivEarthS finances and supports 18 projects, and 7 new proposals have been evaluated.
