Join us for an evening of science and fun with top Belgian scientists to celebrate the launch of the festival in Belgium!

This May, the Pint of Science festival comes to Belgium for the first time to bring you the best of Belgian science, delivered directly to your local bar. To celebrate and to give you a taste of the cerebral joys to come, Pint of Science Belgium brought together top scientists from all over the country for a special launch event on 17 April at ViaVia Café in Brussels. Join us from 19:30 for a relaxed evening of science and fun hosted by long time Pint of Science friend Lieven Scheire.
On the menu:
How forensic science actually works, with Prof. Dieter Deforce (University of Ghent). Spoiler alert: probably not as in "CSI Miami".
The mathematics of digital images in your everyday life, with Prof. Ann Dooms (Vrije Universiteit Brussel).
The hunt for exoplanets in the far far away TRAPPIST -1 system with Emmanuël Jehin (University of Liège).
A peek into the programme of the upcoming festival, of course.
Pints of whatever makes you happy, and waffles! Ok, MAYBE some
