It's that time again. The Geisenheimer Science Pub has entered its second round. The topics covered by the event which kicked off at 7:30 p.m. on October 22, 2019 were "Is the World ready for Microplastics and Drinking Water?", presented by Professor Mark Strobl, Department of Beverage Research at Hochschule Geisenheim University and "Mittelstand myths – what do we actually know about family-owned SMEs?" by Professor Matthias Waldkirch, Assistant Professor for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in Family-Owned Firms at the European Business School (EBS).
Rubbing shoulders with scientists and a cosy living-room vibe: who can resist?
In case you aren't familiar with the format: two to three scientists have 15 minutes max to present their research (in commonly understood, not overly scientific terms) and afterwards you will have the chance to ask questions and exchange views and opinions. Feel free to order food and drink while this is going on. Anyone with an interest in the topics is welcome. Your host for the evening is Katharina Hauck from Hochschule Geisenheim University, herself a seasoned science slammer. The event will held at Zweiundzwanzig, an easy to get to and laidback restaurant in the center of Geisenheim.
