But the format of the scientific cafe is not new and there is practical in all educational and scientific institutions of the world. 2. When did you open? October 15, 2014 3. What are your future plans? Continue to play the role of mediator between researchers and the general public. Conduct more interactive activities and stimulate interest in science. 4.

Our club is the only academic club that tries to connect students from all disciplines and courses, thus contributing to the development of skills in interdisciplinary professional interaction. 5.

Namely, the organizer is responsible for finding the speaker, distributing advertising and posters, as well as maintaining the page on Facebook. 6.
