From the Researcher's Network - Portsmouth Café Scientifique

Every fourth Tuesday of the month the University hosts the Portsmouth Café Scientifique at Le Café Parisien. The Portsmouth Café is part of the Café Scientifique international initiative (http://www.cafescientifique.org/). Groups have been set up all over the world, meeting regularly to explore and debate scientific research questions over coffee or a glass of wine.

The Portsmouth Café attracts a diverse audience of academics and members of the public and provides a great opportunity for researchers at any career stage to talk about their work in an informal environment, while gaining valuable CV points for ‘public engagement’. Previous speakers include Pete Rowley (SEES), Jie Tong (Engineering), Jerome Micheletta (Psychology) and Karen Masters (ICG).

If you think you might like to be a speaker (or want to nominate someone), want to find out more, or are interested in getting involved in organising the events, please get in touch!
