DRIVEN at the FNR “Chercheurs à l’école” 2021

The FNR organised the 11th edition of their “Chercheurs à l’école – Researchers go back to school” event the 15-19 March 2021. Researchers from Luxembourg are invited to interact and motivate future generations and share their passion for science and research.

As part of DRIVEN project, the partners are welcome to organise outreach activities to promote data science and research to the general public and school students. The researchers at the University of Luxembourg always participated in the FNR “Chercheurs à l’école” and this year it was the occasion to promote the DRIVEN project activities with several presentations.

Dr. Jack Hale visited the Lycée Ermesinde in Mersch (Luxembourg) together with Prof. Jens Kreisel, Vice-Rector for Research at the University of Luxembourg. It was the first time Dr. Hale, participated to the “Chercheurs à l’Ecole” but not the last. He really appreciated the open discussion with the students and their interest in his work and career as a scientist. During his presentation, Dr. Hale presented his R&D activities in collaboration with Luxembourgish companies Goodyear Tire & Rubber and Rafinex.

Dr. Katerine Saleme Ruiz visited the European School of Luxembourg on the 15th of March 2021 and made a very interactive presentation to the students about her international career in mathematics and how to succeed in science.
