PubhD comes to France! PubhD Bordeaux starts 6 June 2017

On 6 June 2017, the first PubhD Bordeaux event will take place at The HMS Victory pub. It is being organised by Lise Monneraud from Université de Bordeaux.

6 June Advert 2

At each PubhD event, three researchers, from any subject area, explain their work to an audience in a pub in exchange for a drink 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.

The subjects at the first event will be:

  • The idea of “loyal cooperation” in the EU.
  • Ions acceleration via lasers in plasmas.
  • Lifestyles (notably nutrition) and Alzheimer’s disease.
