ArcoScreen CEO Margaux Duchamp wins the Lopez-Loreta prize
The Lopez-Loreta prize is a relatively new award, which was launched in 2018 by the foundation whose name it bears. It rewards academic excellence and is given to four researchers from four French and Swiss public polytechnic schools, including EPFL. This is the first time that the award – which includes prize money of 1 million euros over a period of five years – has been given to a female entrepreneur, with ArcoScreen CEO Margaux Duchamp taking the award. The award not only recognizes her work on her thesis but also the startup she founded on the back of her research.
