Science Fair Village 2018


Project Description

Every year, the National Science Fair is organised by the French Ministry of Education, Research and Innovation.

This year in 2018, Pangloss Labs is organising for the first time, a “village of sciences”. This means that we gather scientific experts, academics, entrepreneurs for a one day event in October at a great place in Pays de Gex, Pays Bellegardien.

The national main topic this year is “Changing perspective”.

Sub-themes have been suggested as well:

  • Female-male egality
  • International & European Union
  • Climate Change and Sustainable Development
  • Society stakes
  • New innovation mediation tools and technics
  • Scientific news
  • Technical and industrial culture
  • Scientific and technical history

We expect multiple activities to take place on October 13th. This includes:

  • Science movies projections
  • Prototypes and booths (with scientific experts)
  • Conferences and keynotes
  • Label projects demos

We are designing the program until October. Our village will be celebrated as the closing ceremony for the regional program. During the day, we will showcase new projects on ethical fashion, retro-gaming, smart buildings, bioethics and augmented humanity.

Our Science Fair will take place on October 13th.

As it will be during “Pink October”, we will also cover the “Fighting cancer” cause.

Many associations and cities have joined us to partner. this includes:

  • Forum Vega
  • Orion
  • Les Jardins de Voltaire
  • NeoHumanitas
