27 October 2021

The University Politehnica of Bucharest and British Council Romania invite you to participate in the event "The future of FameLab: Increasing the quality of communication between researchers and society".
The event will take place on 27 October 2021, in online format, with selected sessions streamed online via the UPB Facebook page, and it will be officially opened by the UPB Rector, Mr. Mihnea Costoiu, and by the Director of British Council Romania, Mr. Nigel Bellingham.
🔴 Since 2008, the FameLab programme in Romania has opened doors, connected and provided training opportunities for hundreds of STEM students and young researchers across the country, helping to shape a new generation of science communicators. UPB had the honor to host FameLab during its annual POLIFEST event.
🔴 FameLab is the brainchild of the Cheltenham Science Festival launched in 2004 in the UK.
🔴 In 2007, the British Council helped turn FameLab into an international competition, initially running in nine countries in Southeast Europe, and together with the Cheltenham Science Festival, co-created an International Final.
🔴 FameLab International has reached 35 countries on all continents.
