Would you like to share your research with the world? Nominate yourself for Famelab and tell your story in just 3 minutes for a live audience and jury. No worries, we will give you a workshop beforehand to coach your presentation skills so you will be more than ready to go on stage.

Famelab is an international contest for young scientist eager to tell the world their scientific story. Every researcher between 21 and 40 years can join. Only proviso is that your research is beta or medically orientated and that you have ample experience in communicating for a broad audience.

From all submissions, 16 people will be selected. These 16 have just 3 minutes to talk about their research in and impress the jury with clarity and charisma. From these 16 people, 4 will be chosen to go to the national contest. Now again you will receive another, more intense presentation training.  If you blow away the jury in this national contest, than the next step is to go abroad, because the finale is part of the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK in June 2015.

  • Learning why public engagement is important
