Description of the Ceremony
Trophées K2’s 1st edition took place in the Cercle National des Armées’ prestigious lounges on January 19th, 2017. This event, celebrating research, gathered over 600 people. Cercle K2’s Founding members as well as most of the presidents and members of the juries and the laureates were present.
Turmoil prevailed and excitation was tangible! The reason: 22 awards were given to researchers of great quality to highlight their talent, creativity and audacity, thus underlining the multidisciplinary dimension at the center of Cercle K2’s vision and its willing to promote excellence.
This evening, driven by Philippe Cotten (see photo below), was a great success. Krys Pagani, Cercle K2’s Vice-president and co-leader of this action with Mélody Pellissier, summarizes: « It was a great pleasure to reward these researchers and to highlight the excellence of their work. This action (Trophées K2) also enabled us to give an important impulse to our Cercle. Let’s wish the 2017 laureates good luck and see you next year to discover 2018 edition! »
