A commission of the Fondation de la
Maison de la chimie


Developments in science and technology have created a large number of societal expectations; education and outreach of scientific and technical culture has become essential. In order to conduct an informed democratic debate, scientists must share their knowledge with citizens for allowing them to build their own opinion on the advances of science. Many actors strive to clarify scientific data related to societal debates, in order to make them accessible, in particular through motivating and attractive outreach activities.


"Chimie et Société", a commission set up in 2001 within the Fondation de la Maison de la Chimie, participates in the effort to promote scientific and technical culture on the basis of examples of its sector of activity. Chimie et Société is an actor in the mediation of chemistry and is actively involved in the Science-Society debate. Indeed, Chimie et Société is particularly aware of the need to engage constructive debates with citizens and to show them the powers but also the limits of science.
