FameLab is an international competition for young researchers aimed at discovering science communicators that can inspire, excite and engage the public with modern science.

CERN is hosting the Swiss regional heat of the competition on 27 March. Are you a scientist aged between 18 and 35, and working or studying in Switzerland? Sign up by 28 February.

Participants will need to impress a panel of judges by giving an original and entertaining 3-minute talk in English. The Swiss national winner will proceed to the international finals in the UK in June. All semi-finalists will be invited to attend a two-day masterclass in science communication to develop their presentation skills with media trainers and communications experts.

See the Swiss FameLab website for full competition details.
