The diffusion of knowledge and research results is one of the missions of Higher Education and Research.

By disseminating knowledge, a bridge is created between science and society, and the doors of research units are opened to the general public, to schools and to companies. Thanks to scientific mediation, the work of researchers is thus known beyond a circle of specialists: it touches citizens at different levels, arouses their curiosity, their open-mindedness and their critical spirit.

This mediation, which takes the form of a contribution to the artistic and cultural dynamism of the territory, is carried out through several levers:

- by relying on partner cultural institutions,
- by developing new ways of exhibiting and disseminating research,
- by developing cross-disciplinary research and training activities aimed at a wide audience,
- by supporting student initiatives.
