Science L[a]unches are a time efficient and effective way of (1) establishing successful research collaborations, (2) finding potential mentors, or (3) just to meet new people. The idea is to have lunch with researchers from the university, or research institute, that you might have only encountered while walking across the campus. In the long run, this lunches can lead to the launch of new research projects: Science L[a]unches. Make your university a place of active and open exchange of ideas and knowledge!
