Scientific popularisation - media

The Shamash project and the activities related to microalgae have generated many articles and broadcasts in the media: The most important newspapers are "Le Monde" (La recherche francaise pour les carburants extraits de microalgues, 24th-25th July, 2011),"Nice matin" (Des algues au coeur de l'OIN), "20minutes" 'Des chercheurs azuréens veulent mettre des algues dans votre moteur, October, 27th 2010), etc.

P. Bernhard has taken a large part in the “culture scientifique” program of INRIA, towards the public at large and also more specifically aimed at high school pupils.

In another science popularization program, he gave a conference at Cannes Université (March 9) on “Mathematics in every-day life”.

At the request of Fondation Sophia Antipolis, he gave a conference to Bahrain students visiting Sophia Antipolis (July 19) on “The role of mathematical modelization for the decision makers: the example of the Braess paradoxe in road trafic”.

As president of PERSAN (Pôle Enseignement Recherche de Sophia Antipolis et Nice) until March, 2011, he organized together with Pascale Limozin the “Printemps des Chercheurs” in Grasse, (May 21-22)
