Next March 9th, 2018 Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS) and Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) will organize the local selection for the talent show FAMELAB 2018. Are you among 18 and 41 years old? Are you fond of scientific matters? Are you incline to communication? So, you are the perfect candidate!

FameLab is a communication competition designed to engage and entertain by breaking down science, technology and engineering concepts into three minutes presentations.

FameLab was started in 2005 in the UK by Cheltenham Science Festival and has quickly become established as a diamond model for successfully identifying, training and mentoring scientists and engineers to share their enthusiasm for their subjects with the public.

The 18 finalists, selected in 9 Italian towns (Ancona, Catania, Foggia, L'Aquila, Modena, Napoli, Padova, Perugia e Trieste), will take part to the FameLab Masterclass, a training workshop in science communication.

The selection organized by the LNGS and GSSI in collaboration with Associazione per l’Insegnamento della Fisica and Associazione Scienza Gran Sasso will take place in L’Aquila on March 9th, 2018 at the “Gran Sasso Science Institute Auditorium, Via Michele Jacobucci, 2”, and will consist in two phases: a pre-selection, during which at least five candidates will be selected, and a final selection to appoint the two finalists.

It is therefore necessary to prepare two different presentations.

The finalists will “face” in the in the National Final Event scheduled for April, 2018 in Rome.

The resulting Italian winner will face the other european finalists in the Finale Event which will take place in Cheltenham, UK, in June.

To participate it is necessary to fill in the form within March 5th 2018, at 4 p.m.
