The 23rd execution of Mondial des Métiers, the World Skills Competition, attracted no less than 119 091 visitors in the four days of its opening. The town of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes was the ­center of many international companies, including Siegfried, and various training institutions. At the university, the 2018–2019 academic year was declared the Year of Chemistry, providing a good opportunity to raise awareness for chemistry, both in terms of science and industry. 

A big thank you goes to Siegfried’s ambassadors for their commitment and valuable participation during the four days at the fair. 

In 2019, Mendelejew‘s periodic table of the elements celebrates its 150th anniversary. On the occasion of this event, chemical companies together with the Association of Physics and Chemistry Teachers set up an attractive periodic system for the visitors, which inspired the young audience, especially.
