British Council FameLab Science Communication Competition

British Council FameLab Science Communication Competition


FameLab is an annual science communication competition that runs in many countries worldwide. Wherever you are in the world, the competition remains the same. You have just three minutes to present a concept from your field of study to a panel of judges.

Make it funny, make it enlightening and make it jaw-dropping. The judges are looking for somebody who can shine in content, clarity and charisma – all within the three-minute allowance.We want to find the science communication stars of tomorrow, who can really show off their area of expertise in a fascinating and engaging way.

The national champion from each participating country will receive an invitation to the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK.

There they will join an exclusive two-day masterclass led by expert UK trainers. They also get the chance to compete for the title of FameLab International Champion 2019.
