What is it?
The Café Scientifique is a place where for just the cost of a coffee or a glass of wine everybody can discover and debate a scientific topic. This happens outside of the classical academic frame. It’s not a class nor a conference, more an occasion to discuss in a relaxed atmosphere with researchers eager to share their work with the broad public. The Café Scientifique is not a showcase for science, but more a place where you can talk and compare different points of view. Everybody can participate and no particular scientific knowledge is required!
Language is French, unless specified otherwise.
The Café Scientifique usually takes place on every first Tuesday of the month (exceptionally the second Tuesday of January — Happy New Year!), from 7pm at the Sidewalk Café Vinyl (Place du Tunnel 9, Lausanne). Check out the program below! After a 30-minute introduction and presentation by the researcher, we will have another 30 minutes (or more!) for questions and discussion.
