“Beer and science” is an informal event, where scientists present a science topic in 5 minutes, in a pub, to their peers, but also to non-scientists. Our goal is to promote interdisciplinary talks between speacialists in Biology, Medicine, Computer Science and Engineering.
We encourage simple and easy to digest presentations.
At the end of each presentation, we encourage participants to join in the discussions and ask questions. This is a good opportunity for scientists to discuss their faced issues with the broader community. Discussions between the speaker and public can generate ideas for solving existing problems. Also, it can lead to new research ideas.
The event will take place at The Pub, in Universitatii Square.
