We are yet working on the new island for EuroCampus, a space dedicated to education, culture and science, for Universities, Research Labs, Museums. There, we will open next month the APC laboratory area for Université Paris 7 Denis Diderot. (This lab lies at the interface between the study of the very large and the very small, and it brings together several communities (experimentalists, observers and theoreticians). It is centered on three themes : cosmology and gravitation, high energy astrophysics, neutrinos.)
There will be at Eurocampus (29 april) a special event for the launch of the Planck Satellite at Kourou (The Planck mission will collect and characterise radiation from the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) using sensitive radio receivers operating at extremely low temperatures.)
Here is also one of the last work done by our architecht Tatiana f. Salomon and her team : The Paris Rive gauche Island, with its Quays, its Secondhand Booksellers, its Galleries, its Cafes, its Decoration Shops, its theater, its barge… a space only dedicated for rent — events, exhibitions, conferences.
Paris Rive gauche was introduced at Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts - Paris, October 15th 08, on Girl Power 3).
