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. It is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable. Everyone 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.
