The Pint of Science Festival, to be held on May 23, 24, and 25, will invite scientists into local bars to present their research to the general public while sipping a tall, cold beer. This year marks the second edition of the festival, with fifteen events at downtown-Grenoble bars, the student union building (EVE) on the university campus, and at local science education center La Casemate. Topics covered will include neuroscience, geophysics, the social sciences, and new technologies. MINATEC will be well represented with among others Leti’s Tony Maindron talking about OLED microdisplays for augmented reality. A Ph.D. candidate from Tony’s lab will introduce him. The 2016 Pint of Science Festival, founded in London in 2013, will take place simultaneously in twenty cities across France and in nine countries worldwide. Last year 24,000 people participated.

The full program will be available mid-April at:
