Science Cafés


Science cafes are typically places where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the ideas in science and technology.  Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants, dining rooms and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.

These events are a forum for discussing scientific issues, not a shop window for science.  They help the public connect with science.  Scientists and engineers informally share their research during a conversational exchange in a friendly setting.  The organizers are committed to promoting public engagement in science and to making science accountable.
