IFPEN’s expertise and skills are key influence and appeal factors when it comes to conducting open and collaborative research. Peer recognition in a variety of fields, reflected in the numerous, often prestigious awards received over the years, is thus essential. 

Awards and accolades obtained in 2023

Hélène Olivier-Bourbigou et Céline Pagis Hélène Olivier-Bourbigou and Céline Pagis were named by the Société chimique de France (SCF) as Distinguished Member 2021 and Distinguished Junior Member 2022 respectively. The aim of this accolade is to recognise an individual from the research, industry or teaching community who has demonstrated excellence in the field of chemistry and contributes towards its expansion. It is also intended to reward the winner(s) for their significant contribution towards the chemistry professionals’ community.
Antoine Fécant

Antoine Fécant, an engineer and project manager in the Catalysis, Biocatalysis and Separation unit, received the Advanced Researcher Award from the transversal Energy division of the French Chemistry Society (Société chimique de France - SCF). This accolade recognises Antoine Fécant's work in the field of catalysis for the improvement of existing chemical and refining processes when it comes to energy. This work also makes for the exploration of new materials and processes for the growing use of biomass and solar energy. 


Antoine Fécant

Céline Chizallet, engineer and project manager of the Catalysis, Biocatalysis and Separation unit received the 2023 young researcher prize from the French zeolite group (GFZ) for her work in heterogeneous catalysis, molecular modeling and quantum chemistry (ab initio calculations). 


Emma Jagu Schippers

Emma Jagu Schippers, IFP-Schhol doctoral student (2019-2022), received in March 2023 first prize in the "society impact" category of the CentraleSupélec IMPACT 2022 Foundation thesis prizes. This distinction rewards the quality of her work on decarbonization, carried out within IFP-School and which fall within the framework of research actions driven by the Carbon Management Chair (CarMa) on negative emission technologies.
