The Knowledge Bar – taking research out of the labs and lecture halls

How can we show that academic research is relevant and relatable to all? The Knowledge Bar is a series of talks between researchers and invited guests in one of the city´s most lively bars. Topics range from the gaming revolution and consumerism, to masculinity and book clubs.

With a thought-provoking and laidback talk on today’s pressing societal issues or just what’s dominating the hashtags, Malmö University wants to bridge the gap between academia and the community.

In this circus we share the concept and our experiences when producing an event like The Knowledge Bar.
