The UFV Alumni Association is proud to support Science Talks, a series of virtual science cafés dedicated to exploring the latest research and ideas in some of the most exciting areas in science.
Join UFV’s experts in the field for stimulating discussion and a chance to cut through the ‘fake news’ and misinformation so prevalent today. Q&A sessions follow each presentation, allowing you the opportunity to ask your burning questions.
Hosted monthly, from September through December, the schedule offers a diverse range of topics for discussion. Sign up to be a part of these important conversations with some of UFV’s greatest science minds.
