The inauguration took place under the sun shine in the presence of the representatives of the “Conseil Régional Ile-de-France”, the “Conseil Général des Yvelines” and the” Direction Régionale de la Recherche et de la Technologie” otherwise this project would have not been born. The Greenhouse, noble picture of Science from the beginning of 20th century, because it was not anymore in accordance with the today experimental regulations, was vacant for a new life. This vacancy was the start point of a reconversion in a Scientific culture center to answer to a public need and open a door on the scientific world and also offers a space for dialogue in the INRA site of Versailles. Scientists and students will have their role to play in the reception of the public. Particularly, members of the Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin take part to this adventure from the beginning as David Bouchez, president of IJPB expressed it.
Greenhouse-Show is structured in three spaces different in their role.
Visitors arrive in the central welcome space, where takes place the permanent
exhibition “Our nourishing plants” (« Nos plantes nourricières
»). In this space, a cyber deck with an Internet link is in project.
