Pierre Donat-Bouillud, Ph.D., a researcher at the Programming Research Laboratory of the Faculty of Information Technology, has submitted his project to the Horizon 2020 call for proposals and received the international Seal of Excellence award. The main objective of the call was to support human resources, mobility, further training and professional growth of researchers in the European Research Area through international and inter-sectoral mobility.

Pierre Donat-Bouillud, Ph.D. has joined the Horizon 2020 call Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions - Individual Fellowships - European Fellowships with his project DataBugs: Finding Bugs in Data Science Codes. The aim of his project is to develop new programming language technologies to make the work of data scientists easier by using the R language to empirically validate new ideas.

The specific objective of the call was to improve the conditions for research-related teaching and for the development of human resources in research and development. The Seal of Excellence award represents a “certificate of quality” to projects that have crossed the eligibility threshold for funding but have not been funded. On the basis of this certificate, researchers will be able to seek funding at national or regional level.

One of these national supports is the call from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports entitled International Mobility of Researchers, which was launched by the Ministry to support high quality projects approved at European level under Horizon 2020, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. Pierre Donat-Bouillud will participate in this call with his project.
