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

Ever wondered what a real scientist looks like? What does a scientist do all day? What do 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, it's coming to Eindhoven and 9 other cities in the Netherlands! From the 13th to the 15th of May, we're bringing researchers to your local pub to share the latest in the world of science. No boring slide shows, just entertaining talks by passionate researchers. With no complex words or formulas, our scientists will explain their work in a way that's easy to understand and relate to. And if you still have questions, there’s plenty of time for those too. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to meet the people shaping the science of tomorrow. Come and have a drink with them!   

We've organized events in both Dutch and English, ensuring everyone feels welcome. So, bring your family and friends along for a night of learning and fun. We guarantee everyone will walk away with new knowledge and a smile on their face.
