What is FameLab?

FameLab is the world’s leading science communication competition. It spotlights the science communicators of tomorrow, who can show off their area of expertise in a truly engaging way. Participants have three minutes to impress the judges and public, demonstrating world-class content, clarity and charisma

Communicating science is an ever-growing priority worldwide. If experts can turn complex ideas into something accessible and attractive they encourage future generations of scientists and increase public understanding of science and its role in society.

Cheltenham Festivals launched the first FameLab in 2005, and in 2007 partnered with British Council to take the model worldwide. Until 2021 more than 10,000 scientists participated from all around the globe.

Hungary participated in the program between 2018 and 2021 in cooperation with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. 

A new chapter begins: the partnership between the British Council and the Cheltenham Science Festival ended in 2021.
