What's FameLab?

Please Note that the FameLab 2019-20 competition has now ended. Come back in the Autumn for information on the FameLab 2020-21 competition!

FameLab is the world's leading science communication competition. It is designed to inspire, motivate and develop scientists and engineers to actively engage with the public and stakeholders. 

A partnership with the British Council and the Cheltenham Science Festival has seen more than 10,000 emerging scientists and engineers participate from over 30 countries since 2005. In Ireland, FameLab has been running for only 6 years but already boasts an amazing network of 70+ science communicators, all skilled and committed to sharing their work and knowledge with public audiences nationally and internationally.

FameLab Ireland is funded by Science Foundation Ireland and is supported by Cpl Resources Plc and Henkel Ireland Limited. It is managed by the British Council Ireland in collaboration with a host of amazing partners from higher education, research, media and public engagement across Ireland.
