Of guerillas and cafés

Here are a few citations from an EMBO report discussing how scientists are experimenting with new initiatives to talk to the people.

"We want people to engage with other real people who just happen to be scientists"

"The café idea is spreading from its grassroots origins to science festivals and even scientific meetings"

"We're trying to make science part of culture"
