Get ready for FameLab Switzerland 2019!

Are you passionate about science, and think it is your duty to share it with society? Do you love to entertain your family and friends with the latest scientific discoveries or fun science facts? Do you like to challenge yourself and test your public speaking skills?

Come and join FameLab 2019, the international competition for science communication, and become the new face of science in Switzerland!


Get on stage and present in 3 minutes any scientific topic of your choice in front of a jury and a lay audience. You’ll have to be accurate, but also fun and understandable. No slide allowed but you can bring on stage props or your best costume! Your talk will be evaluated by the jury on 3 criteria: Content, Clarity and Charisma. The selected participants will have the privilege to get trained by a renowned science communicator during a whole weekend of Masterclass at CERN! The competition is open to everyone studying or working in STEM subjects (life sciences, technology, engineering, geosciences, mathematics, physics, chemistry and social sciences).

For the past 2 years, Lausanne talented participants selected during the semi-final of Suisse Romande organized by BSNL, won the national final! Katarina Cisarova, in 2017 and Dmitry Kopelyanskiy in 2018 got the opportunity to represent Switzerland at Cheltenham Science Festival for the International FameLab competition!

Follow their example and share your passion for science with the public.

When: Thursday, March 7, at 18h30.
Where: EPFL campus, room SV1717 (To be confirmed), Lausanne.
