Chercheurs à l’école 2022: researchers, meet the next generation! LAST SESSIONS

The FNR is inviting all researchers in Luxembourg to ‘go back to school’ and inspire the next generation of researchers! “Chercheurs à l’école – Researchers go back to school” is your chance to interact and motivate future generations, and share the passion that got you into research in the first place. The 2022 edition takes place from Monday, 14 – Friday, 18 March. Book your session/s now!

About Chercheurs à l’école

The FNR is organising these get-togethers between local researchers (having obtained or preparing their PhDs) and secondary school students for the 12th year now and success doesn’t diminish, on the contrary! (over 70 sessions on average over the last four years).

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.

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.
