Founded by a group of passionate postgraduate students at the University of Edinburgh, InterSci aims to encourage conversations about science and technology.

We believe the best scientific innovations come from interdisciplinary work. We aim to encourage conversation and collaboration between scientists of different disciplines and members of the public. We provide a platform for experts to share their work and an opportunity to learn from others through our varied events.

We are a university society but, in the name of inclusivity and accessibility, our events are open to all.


All of our events are completely free for our members – and membership lasts for one year.
Students – £3
Non-Students – £5
Purchase membership easily online on the EUSA website or in person at any of our events.


ChatSci costs just £2 for non-members and takes place fortnightly in Teviot Row House, Edinburgh University Central Campus. Visit the ‘Meet the Scientist page for exact room each week.

Our main event features two experts who discuss their work or something they find interesting in science. (All in accessible terms thanks to our “No Jargon” rule.)

If you missed the last series of ChatSci (previously known as “Ask A Scientist”), you can check out the photos and meet speakers who featured in our events.

Other Events
We run occasional workshops, for scientists to develop their public engagement skills, and discussion events where attendees have the opportunity to discuss contentious or controversial areas of science. Previous discussions have been on human genome editing, nuclear power, and what we would do if we were contacted by extraterrestrial life.
