FameLab 2020 winners

And the winners are...

On Thursday 10 September 2020 the FameLab Netherlands 2020 Final was held online. The 11 competing young scientists each had three minutes to share their passion for science in a pitch without powerpoint or audiovisuals. Their inspiring, engaging and creative presentations gave the audience an insight into their research.

The jury awarded the overal FameLab Netherlands prize to Liza Cornet from Leiden University. Liza will represent the Netherlands in the FameLab International Final in November 2020 competing against 19 other national winners from across the world. The online audience also had a chance to vote for their favourite presentation. Vignesh Balaji Vijayan from University of Twente, Esther Okafor from Wageningen University & Research and Eriola-Sophia Shanko from Eindhoven University of Technology received most votes from the audience. You can now also watch the full recording of the virtual final, the online award ceremony and all 11 presentations by the finalists.
