A look back on the CENTURI Scientific Day 2021

The CENTURI Scientific Day took place on July 2nd, 2021 on the Luminy campus. It gathered 50 participants at the Hexagon auditorium and 30 via Zoom. CENTURI members have been able to share their research and propose new collaborations on a wide range of topics. Gathering the CENTURI community has been very enriching.
