Each year, scientists across the UK develop their communication skills while engaging and entertaining audiences with current research.

Are you interested in:

  • improving your communication skills?
  • talking about your research with a public audience?
  • joining a global network of researchers who enjoy talking about science?

Here’s what you need to do…

Register here!

  1. You will be contacted by the organiser in your region with further details. In the meantime, use our top tips to prepare a 3-minute talk on your research.
  2. Attend the training session and heat in your chosen UK location
  3. If you win your heat, you will need to prepare a second talk and attend your regional final!

You can take part in FameLab as many times as you like, and keep improving each year until you become a UK finalist!


If you win your regional final, you will be invited to:

  • A masterclass with a professional science communicator in May 2021 (either in person or online, tbc)
  • Participate in the FameLab UK final at Cheltenham Science Festival in June 2021
  • Receive up to £1000 prize money

If you win the UK final, you will be invited to represent the UK at the International FameLab Semi-Finals, and possibly the International FameLab Final in November 2021!

“Becoming part of the FameLab family is the ultimate prize!”
