IPLS Discussion Evening- 'A pint at the interface'

28 March 2017, 6:30 pm


Event Information

Open to



The Orchard Room, upstairs in The Green Man (36 Riding House Street, W1W 7EP).

The aim of this bi-monthly event is to discuss together our practice of science, especially of interdisciplinary, in the warm atmosphere of a pub. Each session addresses a theme. A round of free drinks will be provided.

By essence, because of the various backgrounds and cultures of the actors (physicists/biologists, theorists/experimentalists, for example) interdisciplinary work comprises some misunderstanding. Though it is part of the exciting bit of it, this can sometimes create frustrations and failures. The objective of this discussion club is to explore together the roots of our disciplines and debate our everyday experience in order to better understand each other and the meaning of our work.
