The world's largest science festival is back in May!

Ever wondered what a real scientist looks like? What a scientist does all day? What they dream about? Wouldn’t it be great if you could just meet a scientist in a pub and ask them all your questions? Well, we’ve got good news for you!

Pint of Science is an annual science festival, and this year, will take place in Eindhoven and other 9 cities in the Netherlands!! Over 13th to 15th of May, we bring researchers to your local pub to show you the latest happenings in the world of science. No boring slide shows, but entertaining talks by people who are passionate about their research. No complex words or formulas, our scientists will explain what they do in an accessible and relatable manner. And if you still have questions, there’s time for those too. So don’t miss out on the perfect opportunity for you to meet the people shaping the science of tomorrow. Come and have a drink with them! 

We have organised events both in Dutch and in English. Everyone is welcome, so bring your family and friends along. We will make sure everyone will learn something new and have a fun night out.

You can reserve your spot by buying tickets (€5, one drink included).
