The programme was developed by Biennale Némo, the Scène de Recherche theatre at ENS Paris-Saclay, La Diagonale University of Paris-Saclay, the Siana festival, the Arts & Sciences Chair at École polytechnique, École des Arts Décoratifs-PSL, and Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso.

On the programme

6-8pm – AgroParisTech Disputes #2 : Invisible animal – Dorothy Hodgkin Amphi

Synthetic meat, vegetable substitutes for meat… New technologies are presented as solutions to several major issues: livestock farming as a major emitter of greenhouse gases, and the question of animal welfare.
The “French FoodTech” intends to establish itself as a key player in our new eating habits. But is the problem the meat or the factory?
