FameLab is an international training programme designed to inspire, motivate and develop young scientists and engineers to actively engage with the public and stakeholders. FameLab works in a competition format to engage large audiences globally. Participants have just three minutes to win over the judges and crowd with a scientific talk, judged on content, clarity and charisma.
As part of the programme, selected participants receive training from expert UK trainers in an exclusive two-day intensive masterclass. Originally started in the UK in 2005 by Cheltenham Festivals, since 2007 competitions have been run around the globe thanks to the British Council and local partners. In 2014 FameLab launched in Korea in partnership with Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning, and Korea Foundation of Advancement of Science and Creativity.
The national final of FameLab Korea 2017 will take place in May and the final winner will go onto the international competition which will be held during Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK to represent Korea.
