Costantino Creton is the recipient of the Grand Prize Fondation Michelin of the Académie des sciences 2021

The Michelin Foundation - Academy of Sciences Grand Prize 2021 has been awarded to Costantino CRETON, a researcher at SIMM. For more than 20 years, Costantino and his collaborators have been developing original experimental methods at the interface between chemistry, materials science and physics, which allow to better understand the mechanics of highly deformable systems such as adhesives and elastomers. Properties such as adhesion and fracture of these materials are at the heart of his approach, which he liberally shares with many colleagues both within the laboratory and on a national and international scale. Innovative in terms of fundamental research, as evidenced by his ERC Advanced Grant obtained in 2015, his work is also relevant to a wide range of applications and is finding many echoes with industrialists in the field, including LOreal, Zodiac, DSM and also... Michelin.
