LabEx UnivEarthS Thematic School 2020
A challenge for geosciences and astrophysics
14, 15 & 16 December 2020, in the afternoon – Online
The LabEx UnivEarthS will present the new edition of its Thematic School from Monday 14 December to Wednesday 16 December 2020. This year’s theme is “Opening Science, a challenge for geosciences and astrophysics“.
Due to the health context, this event will be held entirely online.
The School will take place in three sessions:
- Session 1 | Opening Science: how and why? (14 December afternoon)
- Session 2 | Sharing data and tools (15 December afternoon)
- Session 3 | Participatory science: citizens at the heart of Science (16 December afternoon)
The LabEx UnivEarthS Thematic School is free and open to all. Registration is mandatory.
Organising team :
- Anne Lemière, researcher at APC laboratory
- Nam Phan Van Song, LabEx UnivEarthS communication officer
- Aurélia Olivier-Kaiser, LabEx UnivEarthS project manager

Matteo Barsuglia is a CNRS senior scientist and head of the Virgo group at the Astroparticules and Cosmology in Paris. His research focuses on the detection of gravitational waves, in particular on the development of interferometric detectors. He is also the director of Paris Centre for Cosmological Physics.
Jean-Luc Berenguer is an Education and Outreach project manager at the Geoazur, as well as a science teacher in secondary school. He has been working for years on educational projects on seismology at school.
Catherine Boisson is a Senior Scientifst at the LUTH laboratory, in the Paris Observatory. She is involved in ESCAPE, a project of virtual observatory developped by The European Open Science Cloud.
Rémy Bossu is a seismologist and at the head of the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC). Having a interest in social issues, he works on several projects of citizen seismology, including the LastQuake application.
Aude Chambodut is a geoscientist at the School and Observatory of Earth Sciences (EOST) in Strasbourg. She is specialized in geomagnetism processes and measurement. She is also the Open Science project manager of the data service pole ForM@Ter.
Eric Chassande-Mottin is a a CNRS researcher with the Gravitation team at the APC laboratory. He is interested in the detection of gravitational waves with Virgo and LIGO, particularly data analysis aspects.
Jérôme Gaillardet is a geochemist and an IPGP professor. He conducts research to explore the biogeochemical cycle of chemical elements on the Earth’s surface. He is co-responsible for the national research infrastructure OZCAR federating perennial observatories of the Critical Zone of the Earth.
Joanna Janik is a senior research engineer in charge of STI training projects at the Direction des Données Ouvertes de la Recherche of the CNRS. She is also the co-pilot of the skills and training college of the Committee for Open Science, initiated by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
Frédéric Huynh is an IRD research enginner and the director of the DATA TERRA, a research infrastructure dedicated to Earth System observation data and services.
Philippe Laurent is a CEA researcher at the APC laboratory. He worked on the XGRE instrument on the Taranis satellite and is at the head of the educational and participatory science project Belisama.
Rémy Le Breton is a CNRS post-doc researcher at the APC laboratory, working on KM3NeT, a neutrino telescope located at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. He is also involved in The REINFORCE project, whose aim is to engage citizens with researchers.
Julien Peloton is a CNRS research engineer at the IJCLab laboratory in Université-Paris Saclay. He develops cutting-edge software tools to help solve big data issues in research,and notably for the LSST telescope data.
Régis Terrier is a senior researcher with the High-Energy Astronomy group at the APC laboratory. Interested in gamma-ray and multi-messenger astronomy, particulary withe the HESS and CTA data, he is involved in the development of the open tool Gammapy.
Elise Lehoux is a library curator and a Doctor of History. She is currently an STI project manager in the library service of the University of Paris and a research data referent for the University of Paris.
Asma Steinhausser is a researcher at the CR2P laboratory in the National Museum of Natural History. She is the coordinator of both Vigie-Ciel and Vigie-Terre participatory science programs.
Agata Trovato is a post-doc researcher in the field of Gravitational Waves. She works in the Virgo group at the APC laboratory. Her main responsibility lies with the Gravitational Wave Open Science Centre.
