Speed dating with scientists

Popular science

Come and have coffee with researchers who talk about their work and their research interests.

23 Apr 2023

The Science festival together with The university of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology

Have you ever wanted to date a scientist? Now is your chance! Come to the Science Festival and meet several exciting researchers.


Our researchers are excited to meet you and tell you about their research and its importance, while you have the opportunity to ask them questions. You will learn more about everything from phantom pains, quantum physics to plastic in the ocean and much in between.

To create a true speed dating experience, every 10 minutes we will rotate so you get to meet as many researchers as possible!
