For 80 years, the CNRS has participated in the great discoveries that shape our world. These results are possible thanks to the men and women, researchers and researchers, engineers and technicians, who are daily committed to advancing our knowledge and building new worlds.
On the occasion of this anniversary, the Center-East delegation was keen to make the research of its 58 research and service units visible and thus mark its territorial roots. On a daily basis, nearly 1,200 agents take up the new challenges to come every day. Sharing the passions, the beautiful stories, the energies and the projects that have animated for these years, that was the goal. Through more than 60 events, we were able to illustrate the values of the CNRS and contribute to the dissemination of the scientific culture specific to our territory.
The Night of Antimatter
On the occasion of its 80th anniversary, the CNRS in collaboration with the CEA and the French Physical Society organized the first “Night of Antimatter". An evening to introduce the general public to the fascinating properties of antimatter and its daily applications. The event was held simultaneously in Paris at the Grand Rex cinema and in 13 other French cities all interconnected for the occasion on April 1, 2019. In Dijon, more than 200 people found themselves on the benches of the Recoura amphitheater to attend the two local conferences, before following the live stream of the Grand Rex. On the program: conferences, virtual visits to CERN and the PET Scan (Positron Emission Tomography), quiz, round table and webcast punctuated the evening and enlivened the spirits. Although Dijon was not the big winner in the quiz, the evening brought together two specialists in antimatter: Didier Klein, professor at UTBM and at the ICB Laboratory and Manuel Grivet, lecturer at the Chrono-Environment Laboratory.
A lab – A parliamentarian
For the second organized visit, the Carnot de Bourgogne Interdisciplinary laboratory received the visit of Remi Delatte, MP for the 2nd district of Côte-d’Or, on July 4, 2019. Mr. Delatte was able to appreciate the multidisciplinary skills of the institute and in particular research in the field of powder metallurgy and that of transmission electron microscopy for the detection of cancer cells, two key areas for the laboratory.
