Pint of Science | One month to go!

Unbelievably (or maybe we’re just getting old here at Beltane HQ), it’s only one month until Pint of Science comes to Edinburgh!

Taking place globally from the 15th until the 17th May, Pint of Science brings researchers to pubs, where they discuss their brilliant research with members of the public.

Between its inception in 2013 and now, Pint of Science has grown from taking place in three to over 150 cities. The tone is informal and entertaining: venues are proper pubs and bars; talk titles are tongue-in-cheek; tickets are just £4.

The Edinburgh programme includes researchers from two of Beltane’s partner universities. Researchers from other universities, from the Beltane partnership and beyond, are very welcome to be involved in the future. If you fancy a go in 2018, drop us an email and we’ll let the 2018 organisers know of your interest.

In spite of the name, talks can also feature researchers working in arts, humanities and social science subjects. This year’s Edinburgh programme includes two English literature researchers, a social work academic, and a landscape architect.

For now, get your 2017 tickets here!
