Events 2017

The year 2017 was marked by 3 major events, including the 20th anniversary of Science Accueil! On this occasion, we wanted to pay a nice tribute to all those who have supported us throughout these years. We also organized our first Afterwork, an opportunity to create meetings between our members (current and future), and organized for the second year in a row our Salon Science Accueil (SALSA).

Cheese and wine night
November 18, 2017

Every year, Science Accueil invites you to taste the delights of Beaujolais (and other wines) and many French cheeses, during an evening that brings together the international members, the owners, some partners and some friends who support our action.

This year again, we were close to 200 people at the Espace du Val de Gif, and it was a pleasure to see so many people delighted to participate in a culinary experience. Conviviality and the sharing of French culture were at the heart of this event. We would like to thank Société Générale for their generous contribution to this event.

Summer Afterwork
June 29, 2017

It was the very first Afterwork organized by Science Accueil at the Château de Belleville. The idea was simple: to bring together our most recent members and institutions interested in our services to get to know each other better. It is thus in a relaxed atmosphere at the end of the day and in a very pleasant setting that everyone took pleasure in discussing, sharing and meeting new people.
