When “being a scientific community”, gives weight to the importance of the processes that engenders research products.

En attendant believes that the internationalization of research is both an object and a method and pays great attention to the processes (how to do), as well as on the results and performances (what to do/get). When participating to the life of “scientific societies” means presenting significant research products that represent effectively the result of an underlying research endeavor.

Maybe this is, nowadays, a missing piece amongst adults in permanent competition... en attendant.

En attendant… provides the opportunity for participants to publish their work in progress in PIJ.
