What is the Confluent des Savoirs?

Le Confluent des Savoirs (CDS) is the research outreach and dissemination service of the University of Namur.

Its role is multifaceted:

Accessibility for all: The CDS strives to make science and technology accessible to a wide audience. It organizes popularization activities, conferences, workshops and free events to raise awareness of scientific issues among young people and adults.

Support for research:As part of the communication administration, the CDS disseminates and popularizes research projects carried out within the university. It supports and trains researchers in the popularization of their research and thus plays an essential role in disseminating scientific results to society.

Expertise in scientific mediation: Le Confluent des Savoirs brings its expertise in scientific mediation to cultural and associative players. It collaborates with other institutions and organizations to promote scientific culture.
