FameLab is a science communication competition open to graduate students (both MSc or PhD) and postdoctoral fellows working in science, technology, engineering or maths.

Great science communication has the potential to alter stereotypes, create excitement and interest about science and help the public understand the importance of funding for scientific research. FameLab contestants have just three short minutes to explain their research live on stage in an original, entertaining style and are judged on the content, clarity and charisma of their presentation.

12 finalists will be battling it out to become the winner of the 2016 Australian competition. The person crowned winner will then travel to the UK to present their piece at the world’s biggest science communication competition, the FameLab International Final, at the Times Cheltenham Science Festival in June.

FameLab is supported by The British Council, United Kingdom's international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.
