On the Annecy campus of the University of Savoie Mont Blanc, a wide variety of stands, workshops, exhibitions and conferences are organised each year by the particle physics laboratory (LAPP), the theoretical physics laboratory (LAPTh) and the neighbouring engineering school (Polytech) on the occasion of Fête de la Science (Science Fair).

For the first time, CERN has been invited to participate and meet the people of Haute-Savoie.

On 5 October, a cinema evening will be held at La Turbine theatre: a screening of the film Particle Fever will be followed by a Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to meet scientists from CERN and LAPP. What’s more, during the LAPP open house weekend from 9 to 10 October, CERN invites you to visit Accelerating the Future, a photography exhibition about CERN’s research, its applications in our daily life and how particle accelerators may help push the limits of human knowledge in the future. CERN and LAPP have also prepared other surprises, such as the LHC tunnel selfie-point and the Salad Bowl Accelerator demonstration. In addition, the Eutopia Discovery Centre will offer hands-on activities for young future scientists.

The full programme and the health and safety measures can be consulted here.
