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 beautiful tribute to all those who have supported us throughout the years. We also organized our first Afterwork, an opportunity to create meetings between our members (current and future), and organized for the second consecutive year our Salon Science Accueil (SALSA).

Cheese and Wine
November 28  2017

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

This year again we were nearly 200 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 its generous contribution to this event.

Summer Afterwork 
June 29 2017

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

Science Accueil 20 Year Anniversary
April 27 2019

On Science Accueil’s 20th anniversary, we had the privilege of celebrating this evening at the EDF-Lab Paris-Saclay research centre in the company of more than 200 guests. We would like to thank all those who were present and all those who supported us: the founding institutions of the association, banking partners LCL and Société Générale, the EDF-lab research centre. The directors and representatives of the founding establishments, the Paris-Saclay Agglomeration Community and the Region, took turns on stage to mark the 20th anniversary of the mobility program that is Science Accueil. This was illustrated by appearances on stage and speeches from 20 researchers using the Science Accueil services.

34 different nationalities were rubbing shoulders. A jazz band was present and gave the evening a convivial and festive touch. In addition, a trio of renowned magicians successfully hosted the evening.
