For the 10th year running, the FNR is encouraging all researchers in Luxembourg to ‘go back to school’ and inspire the next generation of researchers! “Chercheurs à l’école” is your chance to interact and motivate future generations, and share the passion that got you into research in the first place.
About Chercheurs à l’école
For the 10th year now, the FNR is organising these get-togethers between local researchers (having obtained or preparing their PhDs) and secondary school students with growing success. A record 92 classes subscribed for this year’s edition, compared to 75 in 2018.
Researchers of all scientific disciplines can describe the pupils their life as a researcher: from their beginnings as a student, to their motivation for one or the other scientific discipline, first steps in their professional lives, career challenges and opportunities. It shouldn’t be a scientific talk- more a personal interaction.
For the teenagers, this is the perfect opportunity to ask them all the questions they have in mind and to receive information on the advantages and also the possible disadvantages of being a scientist.

Call for experiences
Since Chercheurs à l’école has been taking place for 10 years, we are looking to hear from scientists who either:
Have taken part in all 10 editions, or
Were on the receiving end of a Chercheurs à l’école session as a high school student, or
Are happy to share why they take part in Chercheurs à l’école and why such activities are important
If any of the above applies to you, we would love to hear from you for our post-Chercheurs à l’école highlight! If you are interested, please send an email to Emily Iversen (firstname.lastname@example.org)
