You will learn all about these, really fascinating, ground breaking, historical developments and their implications in our everyday life.

Dr. Dimitri NANOPOULOS is a Distinguished Professor of Physics at Texas A&M University and the Head of the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) Astroparticle Physics group. His interests are the particle physics and cosmology as well as unified theories, fundamentals of quantum theory and quantum-inspired models of brain function.

The European Science Café is presented by the European foreign missions in Houston. This free periodic event aims to bring science to the public at large by featuring a renowned European scientist. We hope to develop and stimulate an enthusiastic network between the European scientific community and Houstonians.
