The Science Shop launches its steering committee

On The July 12, 2019

Six years after it was founded, the Science Shop decided to build a steering committee, with representatives from different areas of expertise. It aims to advise the Université de Lyon in defining and implementing the program’s major projects. Its first meeting will be held on Friday, July 12, 2019.

The aging population, a sustainable diet, and energy resilience are just a few examples of the contemporary issues that the Science Shop will address, providing society with new ideas and levers for action. It aims to support citizens and organizations serving public interests with expertise and scientific knowledge. In order to support this ambition, the Science Shop will rely on its new steering committee, which includes representatives from academia, local authorities, decentralized services, organizations and the ESS, institutional representatives of society, etc.

The Science Shop steering committee plays a complementary role to the scientific committee, which aims to select the most relevant requests.
