Café Scientifique

Talk science with some of UVic's finest researchers

University research has a funny habit of being hard to access if you don't work at a university, yet research itself in its many forms is one of those great universal passions that appeals to and connects us all.

Our Café Scientifique series bridges the research-to-public gap with casual community lectures inspired by the early coffeehouses of 18th century France. Sponsored and hosted by UVic's Faculty of Science, these free evening cafés provide an opportunity to learn about exciting new discoveries in modern science and meet experts in the field. Each event begins with a 45 minute talk followed by a moderated question and answer session.
