Inserm is participating in the 9th edition of Top Métier 92, the careers forum and professional gathering organised by Hauts de Seine General Council and the National Education services’ departmental directorate. This forum is intended for young people, 13 years and older, to enable them to meet professionals from all backgrounds, and to learn about a large number of careers. Research careers will be showcased, and final year junior high school students will be able to participate in scientific workshops. Top Métier 92 is also open to the general public, young people, junior and senior high school students, university students, and their families.


On the occasion of Inserm’s 50-year celebrations, visitors can see an exhibition tracing the Institute’s history, and the main scientific discoveries to which it has contributed in recent decades.

A second exhibition on the theme of living things and the biological cell, “Les Architectes du Vivant : Cellules à Tout Faire” (“Architects of the Living: Cells Can do Everything”), will also be featured. This interactive exhibition was designed by Inserm and the Petits Débrouillards science and technology development network.
