We are pleased to announce the return of Café Academique.

This is a unique, popular, social and educational event for you to share and discuss your research in a relaxed and informal setting whilst enjoying a free pizza with a range of drinks!

The latest Café Academique of 2017 took place on Thursday 6th July and featured four superb talks from the following Doctoral Researchers:

  • Avinoam Baruch"How citizen science could change the way we respond to disasters"  - School of Social, Political and Geographical Sciences

  • Sophia Tetteh - “How to design a face”  - Loughborough Design School
