This year, Béa Johnson, founder of the Zero Waste Lifestyle Movement, and Danièle Quantin, Arcelor Mittal’s R&D Director, are both invited to present their experience. The audience will be invited by researchers from McMaster University and professionals from Hamilton’s region to explore various research projects such as: dark matter, soft matter, archaeological materials from the Hamilton area, materials for transportation & the EcoCar, modern microscopes & what they tell us about atoms, biomedical materials & the future of patient care, materials & the law, materials & the environment.

Presenters will engage the public with hands-on workshops, activities, and open discussions. Several workshops and talks are offered in either English and/or French.

Presented in partnership with the French Embassy in Canada, the French Consulate in Toronto, the McMaster Innovation Park, the department of Materials and Engineering at McMaster University, the Office of International Affairs at McMaster, and Economic Development Hamilton, this event aims at facilitating and encouraging exchanges of all kinds between Canadian and French researchers and artists.
