The MICROSCOPE experiment, dedicated to the test of the Weak Equivalence Principle, operated from April 2016 to October 2018 in the Earth's gravity field. The global results have been published in 2022, revealing no violation at the 10-15 level for two test-masses in platinum and titanium. In this talk I will describe the experiment, the analysis and results, as well as the main limitations.
