La Casemate

Active member of several networks at the regional level (Rhone Alpes network of Sciences centers), national level (AMCSTI), and European level (ECSITE), each day, La Casemate is inspired by the motto « Think globaly, act localy » to talk to the public and its partners. Welcome in Grenoble, in La Casemate, the place of mediation, experimentation and appropriation of sciences and technology innovations, for all children and families.

Science and Innovation

The team of La Casemate is made up of about 15 mediators coming from scientific research, culture, journalism and communication fields. Our objective: to promote knowledge sharing and the debate of knowledge appropriation involving all stakeholders: schools, universities, research laboratories, companies, associations, NGOs, public bodies, medias, artists, politicians, trade unions, etc.


Jean-Marie Durney

Telecom engineer since 15 years , I decided to completely change domain and redirected me to my childhood dreams of the age of "The Empire Strikes Back" : intelligent prosthesis arm. Seeking information and training in the field I discovered the world of " MAKER " at MAKERFAIREPARIS and MAKERFAIREROME : Awesome !! This way people exchange knowledges, informations, tools to produce something for themselves or the community: it's terrific, I want to be part of it !!
