What is FameLab?
FameLab is the world’s leading science communication competition. Participants have just three minutes to win over the judges and crowd with a scientific talk that excels for its content, clarity and charisma. If you are a scientist, researcher or university student and would like to put your talent as a communicator to the test, then take part in FameLab.
As with all talent shows, contestants are judged by a panel of experts from the fields of science and communication. The winners of each of the national competitions travel to the Cheltenham Science Festival for the FameLab International Final, which takes place each June.
Famelab is organised in Italy in partnership with Psiquadro. It attracts a growing number of partners.
Famelab is an event created by Cheltenham Festivals and promoted by the British Council in 27 different countries.
Contestants who come first and second in each of the local heats will take part in the masterclass. Attendance of the masterclass is compulsory and only in exceptional cases and with approval from the competition organisers can a contestant take part in the final without having been to the masterclass.
