Call to participate in the 2019 Science Fair: submit your project(s) for consideration before April 28

On The April 28, 2019

Over 46,000 participants attended the 2018 Science Fair. Nearly forty research institutions and laboratories, universities and grandes écoles presented their projects, opening up science and experimentation to a wider audience. In 2019, why not you?

The first Science Fair in 1991 was initiated by Hubert Curien and organized by the French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation. It hosts thousands of original and inclusive events in France and abroad for people of all ages and backgrounds.

The 28th Science Fair will be held from October 5 to 13, 2019 and its nation-wide theme will be “Telling the story of science, imagining the future”.

Science helps us understand who we are and the world around us. Thanks to the emergence of new technologies such as artificial intelligence and genetic tools, science is playing its part in transforming our daily lives and society. It also provides solutions for the challenges we are facing, such as preserving biodiversity.

Scientists have important messages for us, both for the present and the future. They provide forward-looking and positive perspectives, showing us how science can bring hope, creativity, ingenuity, imagination and innovation to design and create a better future and a new world.

Researchers, doctoral students, engineers, lab technicians, facilitators and mediators: you are being invited to answer the call for participation by April 28, 2019.

This is an opportunity to share your passion for science with the public, to present the techniques and innovations from cutting-edge research and offer tours of laboratories, and natural and industrial sites. In a world where false information spreads faster than ever, this is also an opportunity to raise public awareness of science and current issues in science.
