The overall national winner will attend the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK and compete in the FameLab International Final. Here a world of opportunities will really be opened up as you network with fellow scientists from across the globe.

Each candidate will have the opportunity to meet other science enthusiasts and gain access to the Famelab Netherlands and Famelab International networks.

FameLab alumni will be invited to take part in science public engagement events in the Netherlands.

Finally you will undoubtedly win the appreciation of the audience for your passion for science!

* The trip to the UK will only take place if Covid-19 restrictions allow this. The 2021 International Final will most likely be held online.
