Description/achievement of initiative

With the initiative "Les étudiants au service du CLIMAT", the Department of Physics has been strongly committed to train students on issues related to climate diagnostics and air quality. In this context, the Institute has proposed an action formulated by 20 students of the "Physics M2, Environment Specialty" as part of their Master Project. This action can be described as the development and implementation of a mini symposium on the theme “Climate and perception of civil society in the cities."Another initiative, the University has been engaged to, is "Les instruments 2020 d'observation du Climat".
