FameLab Hungary 2020

FameLab - talking science

FameLab is the world's leading science communications competition. It spotlights the science communicators of tomorrow, who can show off their area of expertise in a truly engaging way. Make it funny, make it enlightening, make it jaw-dropping – the judges are looking for someone who can shine! Communicating science is an ever-growing priority for researchers worldwide. By making complex ideas accessible and attractive to the public they inspire future generations of scientists and increase general understanding of science and its role in society.
Cheltenham Festivals launched the first FameLab, and in 2007 partnered with British Council to take the model worldwide. Since then more than 11000 scientists have participated from all around the globe. Famelab Alumni have given TEDx talks, written books, become Ministers and CEOs, and have been awarded for pioneering re-search in their fields. This year nearly 30 countries host their own national competitions.
