Café des Sciences
The Cafés des Sciences are scientific conferences for the general public that are organized locally by the Office for Science and Technology at the different consular posts.
● Inform the public about scientific subjects and discover the research work generally carried out by established French scientists in the district;
● To promote the research work of French scientists in the United States.
Sequence of events
The speakers are mostly French scientists working in American Universities or Institutions but can also be eminent French scientists visiting the United States or even American scientists collaborating with France.
The presentations, mostly in English but sometimes in French, are followed by an exchange with the audience (in English or French), and this is followed by an informal meeting to allow participants to meet and interact in a relaxed setting.
The scientific themes are infinite and the topics addressed during the Cafés des Sciences are just as varied: children's brains, mathematics in nature, climate change and health, space exploration, renewable energies, the creation of medicines, swimming across the Atlantic Ocean... Subject matter to cultivate all areas of interest!
These events are free and open to the public and constitute an excellent opportunity to broaden your respective networks, both scientific and social.
