What is Café Scientifique?
Café Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology.
Café Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. It is committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable.
Everyone who wants to is welcome to ask a question or make a comment. You don't need to be a scientist to enjoy the evening - just come with an open and enquiring mind.
Café Scientifique is supported by the University of Reading and the Thames Valley branch of the British Science Association.
