Espace Mendes France

Logo EMF

Espace Mendes France (EMF) came from the activities of researchers at the Poitiers University. Activists on the popular education, ending 1970’s, met people at the street to discuss scientific topics and show how accessible and stimulating science can be.

Mendes Espace has three main objectives: to make research accessible, their methods, their outcomes and processes; to promote the transfer and exchange of knowledges; and to hold debates with citizens about cultural and social questions.
