Conference Centre Les Pensières
Located on the shores of Lake Annecy, France, Fondation Mérieux’s Les Pensières conference centre was created to provide a place of work and discussion for those working in international public health, and in particular, the struggle to control infectious diseases.
Charles Mérieux created the Pensières Conference Center in his family property of Veyrier-du-Lac. Les Pensières was originally a dependency of the Abbey of Talloires. The oldest parts of the buildings date from the 16th Century, and were dedicated to wine-producing. The new buildings were designed and constructed in 1990 and 1992, and expanded in 2007-2008, to allow for development of the training and conference programs.
