Pint of Science Festival in Cologne

The international, three-day Pint of Science festival will see thousands of scientists simultaneously standing up and telling the public about their research in over 400 cities across 30 countries across all continents. Founded seven years ago by two UK researchers, the festival brings a unique line up of talks, demonstrations and live experiments to the nation’s favourite locals. The Max Planck Institute of Biology of Ageing is part of that festival since 2019.
