What is "Mardi des Chercheurs"?

Created by the Polytechnic Faculty of Mons in the early 2000s, the MdC (previously Researchers’ Morning) is a scientific event organized annually by researchers and for researchers. It is thus a privileged place of exchange within which the actors of the research field (scientists under contract, doctoral students, assistants, PhDs, …), coming from different horizons, have the possibility to meet each other, to discover the research carried out by others and thus to allow the setting up of collaborations between people, departments or institutions. Before the creation of the UMONS, the MdC, organized in alternation with the Faculty of Applied Sciences of the ULB, was dedicated to research conducted in the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Applied Sciences.

Since the 2011 edition, the event now involves all scientists and researchers of the UMONS, and since 2015, the Polytechnic University Hauts-de-France (UPHF) joined the adventure. The 2016 edition was thus organized on the campus of Mont Houy in Valenciennes, then at Arenberg Creative Mine (Valenciennes) in 2018, and more recently in 2021 (web live event).

After a period of absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have the great pleasure to invite you to the eleventh edition of the MdC in Mons: the Tuesday of Researchers 2022.

This event will be the opportunity :

  • to introduce colleagues from other faculties to the research carried out by the researchers as well as to the university’s fields of expertise;
  • to nourish exchanges or to initiate collaborations of a multidisciplinary nature;
    to make Master’s students aware of opportunities to obtain grants (F.R.I.A., F.N.R.S., F.S.R.) and research contracts or mandates at the University.

As for the previous editions, we will also welcome researchers from Materia Nova and Multitel, but also researchers from the Hainuyer Pole.

As usual, prizes will be awarded to the best posters (one prize per research theme, and one prize for all categories). The Center for Modern Languages (CLV) will also award a prize for the best poster written in English and REUNICE will award a prize for the best poster presented by foreign researchers (outside UMONS).

On behalf of the UMONS Scientific Body Assembly, I hope that this event will be an opportunity for you to establish enriching contacts and to germinate new collaborations.

Nicolas Dupont,
President of the Assembly of the Scientific Body of the UMONS (CorSci).
