On March 15th 2018, the CNRS awarded its Talents 2018. The silver, bronze and crystal medals are awarded each year to researchers, engineers, technicians and administrative staff.

Jérôme Gaillardet, a university professor and geochemist specialising in surface processes at IPGP (head of the Geochemistry of Outer Envelopes team), receives the silver medal. This award recognises researchers who are at the beginning of their career, but who are already recognised nationally and internationally for the originality, quality and importance of their work.

Sébastien de Raucourt, a research engineer at the IPGP in the planetology and space sciences team and head of the technical team developing the planetary seismometer at the heart of the Insight mission, was awarded the Crystal Medal. Created in 1992, this medal is awarded every year to engineers, technicians and administrative staff at CNRS. It rewards those who, through their creativity, technical expertise and innovative spirit, contribute alongside researchers to the advancement of scientific knowledge and discoveries.
