CERN to take part in the Fête de la science in Ferney-Voltaire and Saint-Genis-Pouilly

CERN will host a stand at the Village des sciences et de la biodiversité in Ferney-Voltaire on 15 October


The 31st edition of the Fête de la science is back with a bang in the Ain department, with this year’s theme the topical issue of climate change. Across several events taking place in October, researchers and the public alike will be invited to reflect upon our environmental impact, potential solutions to the climate crisis and climate-fuelled inequality. 

Keen to show its support for this initiative, CERN will be taking part in the Fête de la science activities in Ferney-Voltaire on 15 October, which will include a Village des sciences et de la biodiversité, organised in partnership with the non-profit organisation Pangloss Labs and with the support of the Centre des monuments nationaux. CERN will run a stand on “How to warm a neighbourhood by cooling the LHC?”, which explores the heat recovery project at point 8 of the LHC. This project, which aims to heat a new neighbourhood in Ferney-Voltaire, is central to the theme of the 2022 Fête de la Science.

Throughout October, science enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to learn more about CERN’s history and future projects with a visit to the photographic exhibition “Une mission scientifique pour le XXIe siècle” (A scientific mission for the twenty-first century), which opened on 1 October. The photographs, which explore the past, present and future of CERN, will be on display at the Médiathèque Georges Sand (Saint-Genis-Pouilly). Alongside the exhibition, the médiathèque will make a collection of books on CERN available to all of its users.
