Chercheurs à l’école – When researchers went back to school!

Researchers go back to high school to present their job: the FNR organised the 6th edition of the campaign “chercheurs à l’école” from 14 to 18 March 2016.

One of the main goals of the campaign is to present and promote the profession of researcher, still relatively unknown to the general public. Scientists of all scientific disciplines from public institutions and the private sector go back to school to meet highschool pupils to speak to them about their life as a researcher: the life as a student, their motivation for one or the other scientific discipline, first steps in their professional lives, career challenges and opportunities.

Pupils are given the opportunity to meet researchers “in flesh and bone” and to receive information on the advantages and also the possible disadvantages of being a scientist.

For the sixth time, the initiative was a great success, touching the pupils of 47 classes in 21 high schools of the country and gathering 63 researchers ready to take part in the action!

The FNR would like to thank all the participants who contributed to the success of “chercheurs à l’école 2016”, especially for their time, effort and support.
