AECC and BU academic to launch Bournemouth's inaugural 'Cafe Scientifique'
26th September 2012
Bournemouth’s Café Boscanova is gearing up to play host to its very first ‘Café Scientifique’ on Tuesday 2nd October at 7pm. Organised by Bournemouth University (BU) and the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC), Café Scientifique is a unique and exciting way of combining academic discussion with the comfort of a coffee shop. For the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, customers can sit down and listen to a different guest speaker every month, who will talk about a science and technology-related topic of their choosing. The topic will then be opened up to the floor, giving everyone a chance to join in and have their say.
Kicking off proceedings will be the AECC’s Professor Jeff Bagust, who is also a Visiting Researcher at BU. Jeff will be delivering a talk entitled “Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow – The Cardiac Foxtrot”. This fascinating and entertaining talk will cover the topic of heart rhythms, how they are influenced and why our hearts need to respond to changing conditions.
For anyone who can’t make the launch event on the 2nd October, a podcast of the talk will be recorded, available for download shortly after from the AECC website, www.aecc.ac.uk. Café Scientifique will then take place on the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm, each time guaranteeing a welcoming environment and an enlightening discussion.
