The journalists visited some of these centers. They met researchers in ESRF where one of the biggest synchrotrons of the world has been built, visited the new nanoscience building of CNRS with its unique equipment. Science journalists could interview researchers from the EMBL, ILL, CEA, the University Joseph Fourier, Grenoble Ecole de Management and other amazing sites. We shall hear soon from the journalists who will share with their colleagues the impressions from this very interesting study trip. But for the beginning – some photos. By the way, try to find your friends to the pics were done in a clean room!
