FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world

FameLab is the world’s leading science communication competition. Participants have just three minutes to win over the judges and crowd with a scientific talk that excels for its content, clarity and charisma.

Every year, we see some of the most impressive young researchers on the FameLab regional heat stages across Germany. The two best partipants of every regional heat go on to the national final in Bielefeld to compete for the chance to represent Germany at the FameLab International final at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK.
