Listen, sip, discuss.
The Researchers' Café enables researchers to meet each other and other staff, students and the public and discuss their research in an informal space.
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 events listed on the Facebook group here.
The next Cafe will be running on Tuesday 17 May, from 4.15 to 6pm in SUSU Bldg 42, as part of the University's Festival of Doctoral Research.
The presenters will be:
4.15pm - Frances Dunn, talking about Deltas
5pm - Nathan Shammah, talking about quantum tech
5.30pm - Paulina Sikorska, talking about drones and privacy
6pm - How to take part in Researchers' Cafe and other options for engaging the public - Tony Curran
Running alongside the Cafe there will be a Public Engagement and Outreach Showcase - in the SUSU concourse. All weclome - do come along and meet some of the doctoral researchers involved in engagement and outreach teams/activities, as well as taking in the Cafe presentations/discussions.
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.
