The Café Scientifique concept has been a successful global phenomena that brings discussion of current scientific issues into the public domain. For IYC2011 a series of Café Chimique (choose your language!) could be organised in Brussels and elsewhere.

The Café Scientifique concept has been a successful global phenomena that brings discussion of current scientific issues clearly into the public domain. For IYC2011 we should organize a series (4-6 events) of Café Chimique (choose your language!) in Brussels (and/ or other main Belgian cities) to present and discuss on the key areas where chemistry is working to provide solutions to the challenges facing society. Background on the general concept of Café Scientifique, its format etc and can be found at: http://www.cafescientifique.org/index.htm .

In Brussels Café Scientifique meetings have been successfully organized close to the European Parliament on a number of occasions and covering a wide range of subjects/ disciplines.


Topic: climate change, nanotechnology, public dialogue, water quality, future food, biotechnology Audience: general public
