PubhD (from “Pub” + “PhD”) is now 6 years old! We created the Twitter account and this website in November 2013. The first event was held in Nottingham on January 22, 2014.
The idea quickly spread across the UK and into other countries. There have now been PubhD events in Ireland, Portugal, Finland, France, Rwanda, Belgium and Poland.
The are currently over 20 active PubhD locations. The full list can be found here.
At each PubhD event, three researchers, from any academic discipline, explain their work to an audience in a pub in exchange for a pint or two. The talks are at a “pub level” – the idea is that you don’t have to be an academic to understand the talks.
