Science Café ("Aperitivo neuroscientifico") is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in neuroscience.
Apertivi neuroscientifici are a tradition imported form France, they are public forums in which scientific issues are discussed informally, involving scientists and non-scientists alike, aiming to inform, to entertain, and to provoke debate to create a relationship between science and society.
They consist of meetings open to the public where the audience is free to discuss with an expert on the most current topics in neuroscience. The objective is to entertain, amuse, inform and create a debate, to make the science more comprehensible and therefore closet to society. For this the aperitivi neuroscientifici are targeted mostly towards young people and their natural curiosity.
Communication of science to the public is a very important aspect of scientific research. The CIMeC is active in proposing initiatives that may favor and increase the diffusion of scientific culture, by promoting the image of science, its role and content relevance in everyday lives, emphasizing its great cultural and social value.
CIMeC Aperitivi neuroscientifici are organized by CIMeC with the support of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto and the Comune of Rovereto.
Aperitivi Neuroscientifici are part of the Italian science café network.
