On November 22 and 23, 2021, the annual Labex Who Am I? Meeting was held at Center Parcs les Bois Francs. Eighty members of the Labex, the executive committee, and the scientific advisory board met during these two busy days (see the program here).

During the first day, participants were able to discover the new doctoral training offered by the Labex, the research work ongoing within the framework of the first two lines of research (Transmission of identity across generations and Integrity in response to stress and challenge), as well as numerous posters describing the projects supported by the Labex since 2020. The day ended with a dinner and a gala evening.

The second day was dedicated to the projects included in the third line of ​​research (Plasticity and changes in identity) and to the transverse program via presentations and round tables for discussion. Before returning to Paris, participants enjoyed the surroundings through free activities offered on-site (cycling, Aquamundo, billiards, etc.).

During this stay, the executive committee and the scientific advisory board were able to discuss the progress of the Labex and future projects. They decided and announced that the Labex will support a fifth transverse project on mechanobiology. Also, the next annual meeting will be open to the entire scientific community and will take place in Paris in December 2022, with the members of the scientific advisory board as guest speakers.
