The Science Festival is a popular flagship event celebrating the sharing of science. It will take place this year from 6 to 16 October 2023 in mainland France and from 10 to 27 November in the overseas territories and internationally.
Organised each year by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, the Science Festival is a must for all audiences. Over ten days, families, schoolchildren, students and science fans/enthusiasts exchange ideas at thousands of free events organised across France.
BRGM, the national geological survey, will be taking part in the Science Festival in Paris, Orléans and across France.
Sport & Science, the national theme in 2023
Sport occupies a central position in our daily lives and in society, as a leisure activity and in education, at amateur and professional level, whether we actually practice it or not. The importance of sport is reflected in its omnipresence in social, economic and media issues – and also in science. Whether we’re talking about basic well-being or advanced performance, sport touches upon a wide range of multi- and cross-disciplinary fields, including ecology, sustainable development, economics, sociology and health.
