TRACES / Espace des Sciences Pierre-Gilles de Gennes

The Espace des Sciences Pierre-Gilles de Gennes (ESPGG) was created in 1994, as the public venue of the prestigious Ecole Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris. It was a dream and a realization of the 1991 Physics Nobel prize Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, and it took its name after his death in 2007. The ESPGG is situated between a street of the culture district of Paris – the quartier latin – and a highly renowned research institution – ESPCI, home of 5 Nobel prizes, from Marie Curie to Georges Charpak, belonging to the city of Paris.
