What is a Café Scientifique?

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

UVic's Café Scientifique/Historique programs bridge the research-to-public gap. Hosted by a number of units across campus, these evening cafés provide insight into topics of popular interest that appeal to the lover of knowledge in all of us. They are also a fantastic opportunity to meet local researchers and discuss some of the most interesting and sometimes contentious research underway in Canada.
