fete de la science

For the third year in a row, AREVA participated in the science fair held in Niamey, the capital of Niger. The theme of this year’s fair, which ran from April 11 to 20, was sustainable development and biotechnologies.

Organized by the Ministry of Secondary and Higher Education and Scientific Research (MESS/RS), the French embassy in Niger, and several research institutions, this fair is held to inform people about the work being done by researchers and to make them more aware of scientific issues of the day.

AREVA’s mining companies in Niger supported this fair, which featured exhibitions, talks and films. The Group’s activities in the field of energy, and in particular renewable energies, were presented to the public in the room for temporary exhibitions in the national museum at Niamey.
