Nadia YOUSFI STEINER awarded the Blondel 2023 medal

This medal recognizes the decisive contributions of her work on the resilience of fuel cell and hydrogen systems

Each year, the Blondel Medal is awarded to a French or foreign academic or industrial scientist for outstanding work contributing to the advancement of science and the electrical and electronics industries in the broadest sense, and carried out with the same thoroughness and rigor that characterized André Blondel's work.

Nadia YOUSFI STEINER, full professor at the University of Franche-Comté and researcher in FEMTO-ST's Energy Department, works on increasing the sustainability and energy efficiency of hydrogen-energy systems.

Her work, which is part of an energy transition approach that respects the environment, was awarded the Blondel 2023 medal at the SEE Grands Prix ceremony held in Paris on December 4.

This is the 2nd Blondel medal for a FEMTO-ST member after Daniel HISSEL's in 2017.
