MILSET Expo-Sciences International 2015


The MILSET Expo-Sciences International (ESI) aimed at promoting scientific projects created by children and young people around the World through an exhibition in a multi-cultural environment.


Around 1,000 young people (largely students) of age between 10 and 25 years exhibited around 400 projects. With their science guides they represented 5 continents all gathered together at one place demonstrating innovative projects based on science, technology and discovery.



The program of the Expo-Sciences International consisted of a variety of activities: cultural and scientific visits, leisure activities, and the exhibition of projects, workshops, animations and conferences.


The Jeunesses Scientifiques de Belgique and MILSET teamed up to host the event from 20th to 23rd July 2015. ESI (Expo Science International) is a positive, fun and educational event for everyone. The stunning Tour & Taxis – the venue of the event site in Brussels, came to life with the youth from the world where they described their projects and also enjoyed their evenings.


This event had numerous objectives:


  • To promote the efforts of the young people, teachers, leaders and organizations;
  • Underline the essential nature of research, science and innovation;
  • Build relationships with other institutions with similar objectives;
  • Promote the exchange of knowledge between young and old; and
  • Encourage scientific culture in a multicultural environment;



The period of ESI 2015 included the Belgian National Day, on Tuesday 21st July, and the delegates participated in acrobatic displays, magic shows, traditional military parade with flags and pennants, and a lively reception for all.


Professor and Nobel Prize Laureate: Dr François Englert inspired the delegates with an exclusive conference.


Also the other events, conferences, network activities that showcased the week with different themes such as energy, digital technology, but also on how to motivate the young people to choose for scientific careers.


The team was also taken to science museum:






A Conference was held on the topic- "How to motivate young people to embrace scientific careers", which guided young people to embark on a scientific career which has become a challenge in developed countries where the young generation has the tendency to shift to easier means of study. Hence motivating young generation is one of the goals to be achieved in the development of a knowledge society. The International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology (MILSET) and Jeunesses Scientifiques de Belgique (JSB) are concerned about this major issue, and decided that it should be addressed during the Expo-Sciences International 2015. This conference was held in the auditorium of the IBGE, at the Tour & Taxis site, Thursday, July 23, 2015.
