For the first time, the University of Luxembourg will participate in the International Comic Festival on 20-21 July 2019 in Contern. On this occasion, doctoral candidates from the Doctoral School in Science and Engineering (DSSE) will present the seven science comics they have created. Do not miss this opportunity! 


In the last couple of months, 22 doctoral candidates from the Doctoral School in Science and Engineering (DSSE) developed the comics within the framework of an outreach activity by the Doctoral Education in Science Communication project (DESCOM). Together with many more people involved, the comics have been produced to inspire high-school students for science.

To raise awareness about science in Luxembourg among the general public, the comics will be distributed during the 26th International Festival of Comic Books in Contern. Come and see them at the tent for comic dealers.

If you miss the event, you can also read a hard copy of the comics in the comic section of the Luxembourg Learning Centre (LLC) on the third floor or download the whole comic booklet here.

DESCOM aims to support interactions between academia and the public by providing different modes of training in science communication for doctoral candidates. The project was launched in 2018 with the support of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) and the DSSE.
