A Café Scientifique is a forum, where for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can participate in the discussion of current scientific issues in the relaxing, informal setup of a Café!
How does it work?
- A Café Scientifique starts with conversations in small groups about the topic to break the ice, fill the glasses, and concretize our knowledge about the subject.
- Afterwards, there is a short talk (usually about 15/20 min) by an expert speaker.
- This is followed by approximately half an hour of questions and answers and general discussion.
What subjects will be discussed ? Any scientific subject that is of interest to the general public.
Who are the invited speakers? The invited speakers are researchers from UZH/ETHZ.
