Pint of Science is coming back to Norwich this month and scientists from across Norwich Research Park will be taking their science to local pubs around Norwich.
Launched in 2013, Pint of Science is now a worldwide event, which sees scientists leave their labs to discuss their research and latest findings in local pubs and bars.
Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation. In 2012 Dr Michael Motskin and Dr Praveen Paul were two research scientists at Imperial College London. They started and organised an event called ‘Meet the Researchers’. It brought people affected by Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis into their labs to show them the kind of research they do. It was inspirational for both visitors and researchers. They thought if people want to come into labs to meet scientists, why not bring the scientists out to the people. And so Pint of Science was born. In May 2013 they held the first Pint of Science festival in just three cities. It quickly took off around the world and now happens in nearly 300 cities.
Tickets are selling fast so book now for the chance to meet the scientists and hear about their fascinating and important work over a drink.
