This year, there will be a total of four regional heats of FameLab Germany taking place in Karlsruhe, Bielefeld, Braunschweig and Potsdam. On the basis of content, clarity, and charisma the contestants will have the unique opportunity to convince both the jury and the audience of their individual research theme in just 3 minutes. However, without the use of PowerPoint but with anything else that can be worn on stage.

And the successful candidate will not only be the proud winner of the FameLab crown but will also receive prize money of 300 € (200 € for second place), a professional media and communication training at the British Council and qualifies for participation in the final of FameLab Germany in Bielefeld. Here, the decision will be reached as to who will go forward to represent Germany on the international stage at the Cheltenham Science Festival. The jury consists of representatives from science and science communication. And there will also be an audience award of a one year subscription of the scientific journal “New Scientist”. So why not register and get practicing!
