Listen, sip, discuss.
The Researchers' Café enables students, staff and the public to meet University researchers and discuss their research in an informal space.
The next Researchers’ Café is on Thursday 16th March between 6:30-8:00 pm in Mettricks Café (Old Town, 117 High Street) with speakers from Science and Engineering, as part of Southampton Science and Engineering Festival.
Free tea and coffee will be available.
The popular Researchers’ Café has events once or twice per month. Always free to attend and no need to register, although people can join the Facebook group here.
This 2 minute film provides an overview of the Researchers' Café:
For Researchers who have volunteered to lead a discussion, you will get to practice explaining your research and may gain new insights and ideas. You will also receive a free Researchers' Café t-shirt!
For those attending (whether a researcher or not), this is an informal way to meet other researchers. Come along for a fun evening, learn and stretch your grey matter!
After time to grab a drink everyone will join one of the researchers who have prepared to talk about their subject area - there will usually be 3 presenting researchers at each event. On each table will be bullet point 'conversation starters' to prompt discussion or questions. Attendees are free to drop-in, switch tables or leave at any time.
