Science Café in St.Gallen

HSG, PHSG and FHS support a new regional series of events: the St.Gallen Science Café. Over a cup of coffee, experts and guests will discuss current topical issues. Admission will be free; everyone is welcome. The discussion will begin on Wednesday, 23 April 2014.


15 April 2014. The institutes of higher education of the Canton of St.Gallen will pool forces for this series of events and offer the general public a dialogue platform in the City of St.Gallen. The absence of lectures is a deliberate feature of the Science Café, where the focus will be on an open discussion over a cup of coffee instead.

On five evenings, experts from the Pädagogische Hochschule, the Fachhochschule and the University of St.Gallen will discuss data and our footprint in the net, dementia illnesses, the Eastern Swiss education landscape, social media and education in childhood with guests.
