Why performing experiments in space?

It is impossible to recreate weightlessness on earth. Yet, zero-gravity experiments are most valuable to gain knowledge on our life on earth and to make major technological breakthrough. They are also crucial to pave the way for future space journeys and to help the astronauts to live and operate in the space environment.
The experiments are conducted in different areas such as life sciences, physical sciences, material or health sciences...
Many European scientists are working on this subjects and conduct experiments in space environment. What are these experiences? Who make them? what is their interest?
You will find in this part a brief description of these experiments.
