Staff and (underrepresented) students from the University of Leiden Social Science Department have worked in partnership to form POP-corner, a physical meeting place where activities to enhance underrepresented groups’ success in HE are based. Students and staff co-design and implement activities to support students to navigate university life and develop study skills.
Paris Montagne Association was created in 2006 and runs an annual science festival. Students and researchers at the École Normale Supérieure wished to share their passion for science and let others discover the world of research through a science festival. Paris Montagne works on a long term basis with high school students, and with the students belonging to the “Science Académie” program. The application forms are distributed in the Parisian suburbs.
