Ten contestants are beaming in from across the globe to compete in the #FameLabInternational2021 Online Final to battle it out for the title of world's best science communicator. Watch the live stream on 25 November at 17.00 CET on the FameLab YouTube channel. Who will take the title of International Champion 2021?
Researchers from the science, engineering, maths and technology fields representing 23 countries will connect online and compete on the virtual stage to vie for the title of world’s best science communicator.
The pressure is on as each competitor will have just three minutes to communicate their research with the audience in an accessible and engaging way - and will be watched by a global audience as well as a panel of expert judges including:
- Rogério Martins, Portugal: author and broadcaster
- Tara Shine, Ireland: environmental scientist and policy adviser
- Julia Wheeler, UK: journalist who regularly chairs events at Cheltenham Science and Literature Festivals
Judges and audiences alike will cast votes for their favourite talks and determine who will take home the glory and coveted title of international champion.
In true international tournament style, the national representatives first competed in semi final heats on 10-11 November, with the 10 winners going head-to-head in the International Final on 25 November which will be streamed on the FameLab YouTube channel .
