What is Fête de la Science?
It's a national 1-week event advocated each year by the French Ministry of Higher Studies, Research and Innovation focusing on raising awareness all over France of French scientific culture and its daily impact on our lives.
The aim is to invite Parisian institutions and scientific/research entities to open their doors to the citizens and experiment, better understand or debate about the state-of-arts research projects of the year.
Fête de la Science is celebrating its 28th year in 2019. It was initiated by Hubert Curien in 1991.
