8 years disseminating science
PoS was born in May 2013 at Imperial College London, when researchers Michael Mostkin and Praveen Paul organized an event in their labs in order to showcase the research they were doing to people affected by various mental illnesses. “It was a very inspiring event. The researchers thought, if people wanted to come into the labs to meet the scientists, why not bring them to where the people were? And so PoS was born,” says Rafael Martinez, the third national coordinator of the last edition of the festival.
The idea was soon replicated in other countries until 2015 saw the 1st edition of PoS in Spain. The event featured 136 researchers as speakers in 25 bars in 8 cities. Since then, the festival has not stopped growing.
