ERC evaluation grade A

The project COMOROS submitted for ERC Consolidator "fully met the ERC's excellence criterion" and evaluated as grade A. Unfortunately, it could not be funded, given the available budgetary resources of ERC for the call. But the region Haut-De-France should be able to finance a part of the project during the 3 coming years thanks to the FEDER funds.
