The dissemination of scientific culture means the transmission of knowledge, techniques and know-how between science and society. This is one of the missions of the universities and it is a voluntary approach that mobilises the University of Montpellier and its scientific community: researchers, teacher-researchers, doctoral students, etc.
Scientific culture is full of actors and initiatives aiming to push back the frontiers of knowledge. Its dissemination aims at sharing, exchanging, experiencing and debating ideas on scientific issues. At the University of Montpellier, it is illustrated in particular by :
- Disseminating scientific knowledge to as many people as possible
- Promoting scientific and technical careers among young people
- The development of exchanges and partnerships
- Training in scientific mediation (master students, doctoral students)
The UM's scientific culture services coordinate the dialogue between science and society through a wide range of events on the University of Montpellier's network of campuses and beyond, for a public of citizens, students, high school pupils and schools. To do this, the teams work with numerous partners: research organisations, CCSTI, associations, cultural centres, public and private institutions.
