The flagship event that celebrates the sharing of science will take place from October 7 to 17, 2022 in metropolitan France and from November 10 to 27 in overseas territories and internationally. The theme of this 31st edition of the Fête de la science will be climate change.  

The 2022 edition at Sorbonne University, entitled “The World is Changing, the Science Too”, broadens the theme to the notion of change.

At ISIR, researchers contribute to anticipate the profound transformations in our societies, by working on the autonomy of machines and their ability to interact with human beings. 

ISIR will participate in the Fête de la Science through several events in October 2022. 

School Home | Tomorrow’s Robots! Robotics workshops 

ISIR welcomes school groups to discover robotics through the programming of a mobile robot. After a presentation of the basic principles of robotics and a description of the robot, the participants will be able to program the robot.

Tomorrow, robots! Robotics workshops

Thursday, 13th and Friday, 14th October 2022

The robotics workshop lasts 1 hour and is intended for primary and secondary school classes. 

Visit | Discovering robotics

ISIR opens its doors to the general public to discover its research activities. ISIR’s researchers will present their promising research work through experimental demonstrations and mini-conferences. 

Come and discover the research activities conducted at ISIR and explore the world of robotics and its new technologies.
