MHIGE : (Mission Humanitaire Inter Grandes Ecoles) Inter-Scholastic Humanitarian Mission
The MHIGE is the largest student humanitarian association in France and is composed of many satellite offices, one of which is at Sup’Biotech. Our goal is to come to the aid of countries in the Balkans. For three years we have been supporting children in Kosovo. Over the course of the year, we collect medical and school supplies, we organize events at the school and we approach sponsors. This work is entirely dedicated to the preparation of a humanitarian convoy that takes place in April.
This year, we organized snacks, breakfasts and lunches. We participated in a market and also organized a very successful evening event!
The visit of the ambassador of Kosovo, Mr. Muhamedin Kullashi, on March 19th, 2014, was a highlight of the year.

Cook&Lab brings together “high tech” cooks from Sup’Biotech who showcase molecular cuisine for the general public, through tastings during open house days and student nights: they are famous for their sparkling chocolates. They lead discovery days with their innovative cooking, and teach visitors how to create their own exploding cocktails!
They also fulfill a catering role at larger Sup’Biotech events: for the ten-year anniversary party, for example, they prepared bite-sized tomato and yellow pepper on a bed of rose caramel. The city of Villejuif regularly asks them to appear at events or inaugurations.
This year, Cook&Lab has begun offering cooking courses in partnership with the Esselières, a local restaurant, on different themes related to flowers and spring fruit.
