Welcome to the space dedicated to scientists & research

Find here all the practical information for your scientific projects.

Let’s increase awareness, together.

The Maison de l’Eau et de la Méditerranée (MEM) has been established as part of an approach to popularize scientific work on the universal topic of water, both present and future. Its vocation is to spread awareness of the vital need to preserve our resources. The MEM looks at water from the perspectives of science, history, and the impact of international policies and their links with the living world (ecosystems). On the shortest time-scale, the visit looks at currently-occurring climate change and its connection to human activity, as well as its effects on both a local and international level.
