Didcot Café Scientifique

Tuesday 16 Apr 2024 to Tuesday 19 Nov 2024

Tags: Talks

Didcot First has been organising the Didcot Café Scientifique since 2010, to share the fantastic, innovative work and science that is happening both
locally at Harwell Campus, Rutherford Laboratory, Culham Science Centre and MEPC Milton Park and across Oxfordshire.

The goal is to bring local people together in person with experts, to hear more detail about some of the groundbreaking research and product
developments right here on our doorstep.

Café Scientifique talks are listed on the events page, where guests can request to join the a mailing list to receive reminders about forthcoming events. Talks are currently taking place online on the third Tuesday of the month starting at 7.30pm, with different speakers each time and we encourage suggestions for new speakers. 

Please email: to join the mailing list or to propose future speakers.
