Our PhD Student Clara L. Hedegaard, co-organized and hosted the Queen Mary University of London “Tech me out” chapter of the popular UK-wide festival “Pint of Science”, which took place in hundreds of pubs in 100 cities across 12 countries around the world from the 15th to the 17th of May 2017. The international festival sees thousands of scientists simultaneously stand up and talk about their research to the general public in pubs around the world.
“Pint of Science is run by volunteers and is a non-profit organisation that aims to provide a platform to allow people to discuss research with the people who carry it out, in a fun, engaging and approachable way by hosting the talks in pubs. The events are aimed at the public who have an interest in knowing what’s going on in science research, but who do not have a background in it. Hence, talks are jargon-free. The QMUL chapter of the festival brings a unique line-up of talks given by excellent QMUL scientists, so come join us to learn and discuss about gravitational waves, genomic medicine, hip cells implant, psychology of romantic attraction… and much more!” – Pint of Science: pintofscience.co.uk/about/
