Go behind-the-scenes of the Centre Scientifique de Monaco

The Centre Scientifique de Monaco is opening its doors to the world – virtually – as part of its #InvestInHealth digital campaign and new fund-raising drive.  

The Scientific Centre of Monaco (CSM) launched the original #InvestInHealth campaign back in 2020 to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Entirely online, the CSM posted a series of video clips from influencers, including entrepreneurs, artists, athletes and CSM patrons, that explained their personal interest in science and why the research being done at CSM is important in helping preserve environmental and human health.  

Now #InvestInHealth is back with a new website as well as a new set of ambassadors promoting the platform, which together will give the public the opportunity to see the inner workings of the CSM once again and learn about the many projects the establishment is involved in.  


Each Monday at 7pm, a different ambassador will hit the CSM’s social media pages of Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to offer special insights about their chosen topic.  Those tuning in will also be invited to step up their involvement with the CSM by becoming a member, participating in events and conferences or even by financing projects.


Alongside the series of fascinating talks will be a virtual tour of the CSM’s state-of-the-art facilities. “Visitors” will embark on a behind-the-scenes walk-around of the 2,500sqm building, going room-to-room to meet the CSM’s research directors and their teams, who will present their work via informative videos. The departments of marine, polar and medical biology as well as the Communicable Diseases Analysis Platform will all be open to visits.  

This immersive experience, which also includes a dive into the underwater world of the CSM’s aquarium space, home to the biggest and most diverse collection of coral in Europe, was made possible through a collaboration with local Monegasque company Virtual Reality International.
