Pint of Science

Drink Up, Think Up!

PINT OF SCIENCE is back in 2014 with approximately 270 scientists - including Professor Lord Robert Winston, Baroness Susan Greenfield, and Dr Lucie Green - swopping petri dishes for pints and sharing their research with the public in 44 pubs across the UK and internationally.
The 3 day festival is back this year, even bigger than 2013; on the 19th- 21st May the festival will host events in 44 venues in 8 cities across the UK, and internationally via branches in France, Switzerland, Ireland, Australia, and the US.
The format is simple: down-to-earth talks by top scientists over drinks and pub grub.

There will be 4 different themes:
• Matters of the Mind – What impact are modern technologies having on our brain? Can we use psychedelic drugs to treat psychiatric disorders?
• Our Body – Should we be able to design our babies? What has the most influence in modifying our body: attitude or diet?
• Chemistry & Physics – What is so important about the water on Mars? How is nanotechnology influencing our lives?
• Planet Earth – How do you survive, and do research, in the Antarctic? Can massive earthquakes occur without us knowing?

The festival will take place in 16 different venues across London, hosting talks from over 30 speakers every evening for the three nights. In total we intend to have 300 talks across the festival and expect to host about 10,000 attendees.

Key speakers this year include Professor Lord Robert Winston, Professor Molly Stevens, Baroness Susan Greenfield, Dr Lucie Green, Guardian correspondents Suzi Gage and Alok Jha, Professor Sir Simon Wessely, and Professor Stuart Allan with many more to be confirmed. There will also be some light relief on hand from acclaimed Belgian comedian Lieven Scheire and mathematician-cum-comedian Matt Parker.
