What are the aims 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!

How does the Researchers' Café work?

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.
