Rencards du savoir

Updated on:

The Rencards du savoir (literally, 'Knowledge meet-ups') invite the general public to take an interest in Bordeaux research, thanks to a yearly programme of debates on current topics, held in local cafés and cinemas.

Running since 2017, these lecture cycles are organised throughout the academic year. The Rencards du savoir take place on the different university campuses or in different venues in the Bordeaux metropolitan area.

These meetings and discussions with the general public offer an opportunity to discuss a wide range of topics dealing with the relationship between science and society. They are also a chance to discover research in all its forms, away from the laboratories and universities.
