Oct 20 2017

As part of the Manchester European City of Science initiatives, the JRC together with Manchester Metropolitan University presents for the second time a unique communication initiative: a Science café, entitled "Global Science Local Impact".

You are invited to join for an immersive and engaging debate about how to meet Manchester’s future energy demands. Discover how scientists from the European Commission are rising to the challenge of keeping Europe’s lights on and what this means for Manchester’s future as a world of biofuels and next-generation batteries is explored. Be prepared to experience interactive art and hands-on performances inspired by the science of smart cities. But most importantly, be a part of Manchester’s future as a world-leading, sustainable city. Pretty smart, right?
