ANR Young researcher project “Structure and Homotopy of Configuration Spaces” (SHoCoS) selected!
Some time ago, I submitted a “Young Researcher” (JCJC) grant proposal to the French National Research Agency (ANR). I was listed as the scientific coordinator (“PI”), and I wrote the project in collaboration with Adrien Brochier, Yves Guiraud, and Christine Vespa.
We recently learned that the proposal has been accepted by the ANR! This is amazing news. We’ll get funding over the next five years to conduct research, hire postdoc(s), and hopefully get some interesting results on configuration spaces. There are many people I’d like to thank, too many to list here – they know who they are and I’ve sent them personal messages.
Update. Our project now has a website located at https://shocos.idrissi.eu.
