FameLab

famelab_imageFameLab is an international competition that involves people in the world of science, from students to professors and teachers. The aim is to reveal to the world the next generation of scientific communicators. This rocks!

It is the first year that Italy participate to the competition. The intiative is promoted by British Council – Italia, along with Psiquadro, the main organizer of Perugia Science Fest, and Frank Burnet Consultancy.

I had the privilege to participate to the first Italian selection (in Bologna) to elect the Italian representative that will compete with other 20 champions among the other countries. I made it to the second place, meaning that I will go with other 7 enthusiastic scientists (selected in Trento, Perugia and Naples) to Perugia for a workshop in science communication (14th-15th April).

This page is to collect what happens from now until Perugia Science Fest.

Keep updating!
