FameLab International is an exciting competition, which aims to discover the world's brightest minds in science and engineering. This global competition has become an established model for successfully identifying, training and mentoring scientists and engineers and sharing their enthusiasm for their subjects with the public.
Would you like to be the new face of science in Romania? Join the 7th edition of the FameLab Romania competition!
This global competition is open to anyone, aged between 18 and 35, studying or working in science, technology, engineering, medicine or mathematics. English pronunciation and speaking skills at intermediate level will be necessary for contestants who progress to the international phase of the FameLab competition.
Please note that we cannot accept people who are already working professionally in public engagement with science or who have taken part in any previous FameLab finals in Romania.
You can register for FameLab online with a video presentation or at the face-to-face selection events.
Prepare a 3-minute video in which you present a scientifict subject of your choice and register via the online registration form. The deadline for video entries is midnight 29 April 2014.
Please note that videos should:

Register for a face-to-face event
You must drop-in to an audition session to have a chance of participating in a regional selection event. The auditions will be held just before the regional selection event begins.
The auditions and the regional selection events are scheduled to take place on the same day, at the same venue. Although your presentation will be 3 minutes long, we encourage you to keep the whole day free. PowerPoint and other presentation software is not allowed. You are encouraged to keep the use of props to a minimum (there will be no time for set-up).
