The FiNYS Apéro’s are back! Join us in our excitement to re-establish our French Apéro series: let’s meet, chat, talk science, support and get to know each other – simply strengthen and expand the French network of (young) imaging scientists!

Currently the following Apéros are “under construction”

upcoming editions:
  • Strasbourg (tbc)
  • Marseille (tbc)

How it works

We just meet after work at in a bar, each time in a different French city. Besides talking about science and life, hurdles, and success stories, we can plan further FiNYS activities, learn about your needs and ideas… snacks and drinks are kindly provided by the France Life Imaging network. The only think you need to do is register. THAT’S IT!


Here you can easily sign-in for upcoming editions (once dates are set).

Who we are and why you should join

FINYS is the French young ESMI group and as such part of the “mother society”. It is a bottom-up initiative run by the wonderful leadership team Sophie, Swannie, Audrey, Amaury, Matthieu, and Céline. Their aim is to provide an easy, informal entry into the imaging science community and to build a strong (French) network at the very beginning of one’s career.

The Apéro Series is kindly supported by FLI
