Fête de la Science @ ECE

Home » Fête de la Science @ ECE

Come and celebrate science

To mark this year’s Fête de la science (Science Festival) on the theme of climate change, ECE, the engineering school of the OMNES Education group, is opening its doors to students, staff, schoolchildren and the general public on Friday, October 14, at its Paris Eiffel campus in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. These two days will provide an opportunity to meet with our teaching and research staff and students, and to take part in conferences and workshops to discover our research center and its activities on the issues and challenges of climate change and, more broadly, sustainable development.

ECE research center

The ECE research center covers a broad spectrum of scientific fields, including both fundamental and applied aspects. Our work focuses on three areas at the crossroads of Intelligent Communicating Systems, Mathematical Methods for Scientific Engineering, and Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies. All these scientific fields will be presented through original and entertaining approaches that are accessible to all. This event is organized with the support of the Ile-de-France Region and the Mairie du XVème arrondissement de Paris.

The program

Attend conferences and speeches focusing on climate change, discover research workshops and student projects, visit our connected vegetable garden on the ECE rooftop.
