European Researchers' Night


 On Friday 30 September, the LAUM invites you to the Quinconces for the 13th edition of the European Night of Researchers.

 his is an opportunity to meet researchers from all disciplines, from the exact sciences to the humanities and social sciences, and to learn more about the research work of today and tomorrow, all during a convivial and fun evening, intended for all audiences!

 The 2022 theme: The Unforeseen

Research is not a long, quiet river... The unexpected is commonplace when working in a laboratory: change of subject, unexpected discoveries, surprises in the field or during experiments, contributions from amateurs and/or novices, bright ideas, etc. Researchers cultivate serendipity* on a daily basis!

Come and meet us, and let us surprise you... 

On the programme :

For this edition, the LAUM will propose 2 stands:

Nanoscale earthquakes: how to create and use them ?


Everyone knows about earthquakes caused by the movement of tectonic plates.
The human body can feel the tremors when the seismic waves,with wavelengths of up to several kilometres, reach the earth's surface. But did you know that earthquakes.
But did you know that earthquakes can also occur at the nanoscale (1 billionth of a metre), which can only be felt by atoms?
can only be felt by atoms? Researchers are creating and monitoring these nanoscale earthquakes in metals and
in metals and semiconductors in the laboratory.

Let's find out how it works and what the potential applications are.
and potential applications through one-on-one discussions with researchers, demonstration experiments
demonstration experiments, animations and photos!
