La Fête de la Science
Created in 1991 at the initiative of Hubert Curien, then Minister of Research, the “Fete de la Science”, which became a national event, aims to bring citizens closer to science.
Each year throughout France, hundreds of actors offer free workshops, conferences, screenings, exhibitions, open their laboratory, discover the cultural and scientific heritage of the territory.
