Do you think scientists should communicate their work clearly and precisely, and not leave it to the journalists and media? If you're tired of how science is misrepresented around you, or just want to be able to talk about science conversationally, join our workshop and become a skilled communicator.
Our workshops focus on public speaking and are highly recommended for interested slammers but also open for all students, PhD student and postdocs who want to improve speaking skills. Take this opportunity to train your communication skills in a small group with other researchers - get direct feedback and learn form eachother.
FameLab is an international competition in science communication. Three judges select the best talk based on the three factors content, clarity, charisma. The winners of the semi-finals are invited to a Masterclass weekend on April 21st and 22nd at CERN and will get professional coaching. The national final takes place on May 17th in Bern, the winner represents Switzerland in the international final at the Cheltenham Festival between June 5th and 10th in UK.
