Applications are open for the 2023 edition of FameLab, the international competition for young scientific researchers with communicative talent. FameLab Italy (www.famelab-italy.it) in coordination with Psiquadro in association with the Cheltenham Science Festival and set up in 2023 in partnership with over 100 science and cultural partners including the National Research Council.

FameLab is a public speaking competition dedicated to young researchers and doctoral students who, in just 3 minutes, must present scientific content in a popular language (in Italian or English) and win the votes of a jury of experts from the world of science and communication. The competition is a special and original event to publicize one’s research activity, an international showcase and meeting point for young researchers, and an opportunity to train in some of the most effective public communication techniques.

The 2023 edition of FameLab sees two great innovations: for the first time, the competition will be open not only to competitors from the scientific, medical, and engineering fields but also to competitors from the humanities who embrace scientific methods, theories, and data in their research and talk about it in their talks. Those interested in anthropology, archeology, economics, philosophy, geography, law, linguistics, literature, art history, psychology, political science, sociology and history are accepted. Furthermore, the national champion will have access to the international final and a prize of €1,500.

A variety of local selections are provided at 12 Italian cities, four of which have some CNR structures among their partners: Ancona (CNR – IRBIM), Camerino (CNR – ICCOM, CNR – INO, CNR – ISPC), Catania (CNR – IMM) and Genoa (CNR – Communication Unit).
