Science & Society Activities:
Cafe Scientifique 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 science and technology.
Dr Koumandou has been organizing Cafe Scientifique in Athens since February 2013.
Meetings take place once a month, currently on Mondays (talks are given in Greek).
Videos of past talks are hosted on the site of Bodossakis Lectures on Demand.
The Athens Science Festival is a week of experiment demonstrations for kids of all ages, workshops, talks, performances, science & art installations, and other happenings. The festival runs once a year, for a week in the spring, in Technopolis at the center of Athens. It is organized by the educational organization “Science Communication – SciCo”, the British Council, the Onassis Scholars’ Association and the General Secretariat for Research & Technology, in collaboration with various academic, research and educational institutes. Dr Koumandou was part of the organizing team of the first festival in 2014, helping to organize Cafe Scientifiique talks.
