Café Scientifique

The Yorkshire Philosophical Society is pleased to support the ongoing activities of Cafe Scientifique in York.

Café Scientifique is a place where, a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in your hand, you can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.

The first Cafés Scientifique in the UK were held in Leeds in 1998. From there, cafes gradually spread across the country. Currently, some forty or so cafes meet regularly to hear scientists or writers on science talk about their work and discuss it with diverse audiences.

Café Scientifique York in April and May 2023 will be held on Monday 17th April and May 15th in York St John Student’s Union, Clarence Street, York – details to follow shortly.
