About Pint of Science

Pint of Science is a grassroots non-profit organisation that has grown astronomically over the few years since two people decided to share their research in the pub. Although our mission has expanded, our core values remain the same: to provide a space for researchers and members of the public alike to come together, be curious, and chat about research in a relaxed environment outside of mysterious laboratories or daunting dark lecture theatres. We believe that everyone has a place at the table to discuss the research going on both on our doorsteps and far beyond. Our missions and visions are based around the people that matter most: our audience, volunteers, speakers, and our wider research community.

Join us for our launch event – a little ‘sip of science’ – ahead of the main Pint of Science Festival taking place from the 22nd – 24th May 2023.

You will hear fascinating flash talks across multiple themes featuring some of Manchester’s leading thinkers and researchers. Complementary welcome drinks will be served until 5:45pm.

Here’s a taster of some of the subjects we’ll be hearing about:

Sip of Science: Our Body

Erin-Claire Pallot: Mucus Defences

Joe Ravetz, Future Cities Lead at The University of Manchester: It’s about the CHAI – ‘collective human-artificial intelligence’
Dr Chika Watanabe, Senior Lecturer in Social Anthropology, The University of Manchester: Can (should) we make disasters fun?

Sip of Science: Beautiful Minds
