Co-organised by Aix-Marseille University and the CNRS, in partnership with Centrale Méditerranée and Inserm, it’s a new festive and scientific event, free of charge and open to everyone, young and old. More than 80 scientists are coming to meet the people of Marseilles through fun and interactive activities. It’s a chance to get to the heart of research and explore its impact on our daily lives!
