Every year, the Chancellerie des Universités de Paris awards a dozen solemn and formal prizes for the scientific value of PhD dissertations, freshly defended within the framework of arts and humanities. Among those prizes of Chancery, the Schneider originates from the bequest of the Chief Executive Officer Joseph Schneider, in remembrance of his son, Jean Schneider.
This year, the C.R.I.A. is very pleased to number among its members the winner of the Schneider prize, Maude Sainteville, for her PHD Dissertation - prepared under the direction of Professor Gabriel Dupuy - entitled: « Structure and organization of economic space as driven by stock exchange activity, flows and networks ».
This distinction highlights the interest of networks as research objects in country planning and geography. In addition, it encourages the deepening of the research field of financial geography.
On this occasion, Maude offers her thanks to all of the members of the C.R.I.A. team for their remarks, encouragement, and support, with special thanks to Professor Gabriel Dupuy and Isabelle Géneau de Lamarlière. She is also grateful to the Ecole doctorale de Géographie de Paris, to the laboratory U.M.R. Géographie-Cités, to the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and - it goes without saying - to the Chancellerie des Universités de Paris.
