The Pint of Science festival brings researchers to your local pub, where they will tell you about the latest news in their scientific world. On 23 May at 19.30 in restaurant STAN, SEM’s postdoctoral researchers Koen van Zon and Soetkin Verhaegen will share their findings in their research on how European and international institutions interact with citizens and vice versa.
