Famelab – Join the new generation of science communicators
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 test your talent as a communicator take part in FameLab.
Since the project started in 2012, thanks to the collaboration between British Council and Psiquadro – Perugia Science Fest, Famelab has engaged with 20 cities, over 900 researchers and more than 70 cultural partners.
As with all talent shows, contestants are judged by a panel of experts from the fields of science and communication. The British Council runs FameLab competitions in around 22 countries each year, and the winner of each national competition travels to the UK's renowned Cheltenham Science Festival to compete in the FameLab International Final.
