Launched in 2015, the "Prix CCR Cat Nat" rewards a doctoral thesis in the area of knowledge of natural disaster risks as well as the application of such knowledge to insurance and to risk prevention.
The Prix CCR Cat Nat was created to encourage research into natural disasters and the application of this research to the insurance industry and the prevention of risks.
The purpose of the award is to reward a doctoral thesis in this area that constitutes innovative, detailed and original research and provides insight on the theoretical aspects and practical issues associated with the thesis topic.
The Prix CCR Cat Nat is open in the European area and is given in recognition of a winner chosen by a jury composed of university academics, research and insurance sector experts and CCR representatives.
Applicants to the award defended a thesis between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015.
For this second edition, the award was presented at the time of the 7th edition of Journée CCR CAT held on June 30, 2016 at Eurosites Geoges V in Paris. The award was attributed to Vanessa Mulot for her thesis "Marine submersions: new challenges, new legal practices". As Ms. Mulot was sitting an exam the day of the award presentation, it was Marie-Laure Lambert, researcher and professor of environmental law at Aix-Marseilles University and thesis supervisor who presented the thesis on Vanessa Mulot's behalf.
