On the occasion of a scientific event or an event, IUEM is called upon to organise poster exhibitions on a theme related to its laboratories. These posters can be viewed and downloaded in a reduced format.
These exhibitions can be borrowed free of charge for scientific or cultural events from the Communication and Scientific Mediation Department. Transport and insurance are the responsibility of the borrower.
Chemistry to understand the sea
How can we understand the world around us without using chemistry? Sooner or later, the life and earth sciences must use the sciences of matter to continue to advance knowledge. Chemistry thus occupies an increasing share in marine sciences. In addition to marine chemistry, many applications have developed in biology, ecology, geology and integrated approaches such as “biogeochemistry”. The exhibition, illustrated with humour by Nono’s drawings, brings a different perspective on realities that we think we know well, such as salt or sand. It is also, for a few examples, a dive into the heart of some of IUEM’s laboratories.
From a sea to another: the marine environment in the face of introduced and invasive species
Globalization is also ecological: man transports, voluntarily or not, thousands of living species across the planet. But some of them are invasive, to the detriment of ecosystems and local economic activities. This major ecological challenge of the 21st century also concerns the marine environment, where its ecological and economic consequences are sometimes severe at the local level. In Brittany as elsewhere, the marine and coastal environment is subject to introductions of exotic species. Some of the most visible examples are crepidules, oysters, spartinas and sargasses. They illustrate the diversity of situations, scientific issues and challenges facing societies.
