“French Physicists’ Tournament” 2021 !

French Physicists’ Tournament (FPT) is an annual meeting of student teams from French institutions of higher education, during which students exchange on a dozen open physics problems that they have prepared for 5 months prior to the tournament.

These exchanges, in the form of scientific jousting, are called Physics’ Fights. A team is made up of six students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate studies (L3/M1 or second year of school).

The team of “Université Grenoble-Alpes” supervised by Laurent Ranno (Team Leader) took part on February 12th and 13th 2021 in the 8th edition of this tournament, by videoconference (because of COVID). The team, which is based on the UGA campus, was hosted by the Institut Néel on Saturday, February 13th.
The team placed 6th in the final with a magnificent silver medal due to the degraded preparation conditions.

The tournament was won by the University Paris-Saclay, which will represent France in the final of the International Physicists’ Tournament (IPT 2021) in Warsaw, probably still by videoconference.
Let’s wish them good luck!

French Physicists’ Tournament is organized by “réseau Jeunes de la Société Française de Physique” and sponsored by the Academy of Science
