From October 06 to 16, science and sport are celebrating!

The Fête de la science is a national event that has become a must. This annual event is an opportunity for citizens of all ages to discover science and the work of researchers, to meet scientists, to share knowledge and to ask questions about the major issues facing our society. In light of current events, the theme of this 32nd edition is "Sport and Science".

Sport is a social phenomenon present in every human community on the planet. Whether practiced for well-being or at the highest level, it shines through its social, economic and media omnipresence. Transgenerational, sport is a vector of educational values, integration and social diversity. Its challenges are numerous, and today it encompasses a very broad, cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary scientific field.

For the seventh year, the University of Montpellier is coordinating the event throughout the Héraultdepartment. The program for this special edition includes several hundred free events open to all throughout the Hérault region.

All those involved, in Montpellier and in many other towns and villages in the department, are mobilizing to give as many people as possible a free view of living, innovative, captivating, often entertaining and always essential science.

  • The Science Village at the Faculty of Education (University of Montpellier) on Saturday October 7 and Sunday October 8 offers a wide range of activities for young and old alike, designed to put the spotlight on science through workshops, demonstrations, experiments, games, lectures and shows.
  • The Palais Universitaire des Sports Veyrassi is the perfect place to continue your tour of Montpellier, exploring the national theme of "Sport and Science" through workshops, demonstrations, games and a major exhibition.
  • The Festival des sciences at the Parc du Lunaret on Saturday October 14 offers an original program, free and accessible to all, combining research, naturalist associations, art, literature... for young and old, novices and initiates alike.
  • The Living Planet Festival in Saint-Gély-du-Fesc, from October 11 to 14, offers a series of free events dedicated to climate change and its impact on biodiversity, health and sporting activities. 
  • The Communauté de communes Vallée de l'Hérault (Hérault Valley Community of Communes ) is offering a rich program of events in numerous facilities (libraries, media libraries and village halls) in the canton of Gignac throughout the Fête de la science.
