A Science Café is a meeting place for anyone who is curious about research. Over a cup of coffee or other refreshments the public and researchers sit down to discuss topical issues or new discoveries. Science Cafés are organised in many countries around the world.
The basic idea behind a Science Café is for the public’s questions and points of view to drive the conversation. The participating researcher or researchers provide a very brief introduction and then open the floor to everyone. Moderators make sure everyone has a chance to participate.
In Sweden, VA promotes the concept and supports organisations wishing to organise their own café conversations.
