FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world for young researchers and university students.
Over Italy’s 10-year history, thanks to the collaboration between British Council and Psiquadro – Perugia Science Fest, Famelab Italy has engaged with 20 cities, over 900 researchers and more than 70 cultural partners.
On the competition stage, participants had just three minutes to share their scientific research or work with a general audience armed with just simple props. Finalists were judged on the FameLab 3C’s: content, clarity and charisma.
2021 marks the final year of the Famelab International competition delivered globally in partnership with the British Council. From 2022 Famelab Italy will be managed by Psiquadro and Cheltenham Science Festival.

He was selected by an esteemed judging panel. Michele Dusi represented Italy at the Famelab International Online Final 2021.
