What is Pint of Science?
This festival to popularise research was held for the first time in London in 2012 and has gradually spread around the world, with 25 countries organising the event in 2022. The festival is now expanding in France, with some 40 cities scheduled to host it in 2023. Its aim is to popularise local scientific research in bars on a wide range of subjects (from neuroscience to social science, astrophysics, history, biology, psychology, etc.).
