About SciBar

SciBar is a free science communication and public outreach event that takes place monthly in Innsbruck.

Each month, we ask local scientists to come along and share their science –without a PowerPoint presentation or a beamer, and in a bar (usually), ideally with a beer in hand!

Everyone is welcome. If you have a general interest in science (or one of the topics happens to grab your attention), then a SciBar event is a great place to learn a bit more, or to ask speakers the questions you’ve always wanted answered. You don’t have to know about science – just turn up with an inquiring mind.

We hope to expand the SciBar idea and fill bars with thirsty scientists and curious science-lovers throughout Austria and the world!

Behind SciBar

Who makes things happen?

The SciBar idea came from the British Science Association. It’s popular at universities across the UK and the first SciBar event was brought to Innsbruck by Suzanne Whitby. SciBar is sponsored by SciComm Success
