It is one of the first French initiative to broadcast short conferences (15 minutes) over the Internet in order to reach a wide audience.
The subjects range from fundamental sciences to social and political sciences, history, arts and philosophy. The speakers are selected to present rapidly and clearly the challenges of the contemporary world as well as the newest research topics and ideas. The goal is the dissemination of knowledge to the widest public audience possible by using the new technologies available.
