Dear all,
I’m delighted to share the link to the official results of the first
french national open science awards for free software in research, that
were unveiled this saturday February 4th, during the track dedicated to
software in open science :
– original french version on the website of the ministry of research

– automated english translation

The variety and depth of these contributions (some started as early as
1984!) is an inspiration for us all.
In due time, we will publish more details about the organization of these
awards, which has required a considerable amount of work, and we hope to
see more countries follow the example set by France.
