10th edition of Chercheurs à l’école: final sessions!

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.

How to take part

Below are the sessions that have remained free after the registration deadline. If you would like to take part, please send an email to chercheursecole@fnr.lu as soon as possible with your name, institution, position, domain and languages (DE and/or, FR, and/or EN, and/or LU). Please ensure to choose a class that has specified at least 1 language you are comfortable presenting in.

Registration is closed.

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 (emily.iversen@fnr.lu)

Sharing insights to inspire the next generation

From 25 – 29 March 2019, the 9th edition of Chercheurs à l’école took part in schools across Luxembourg, involving more than 100 researchers and science communicators. The FNR spoke to a handful of the researchers who took part about why they took part and why it is important to inspire the next generation.
