The FameLab winner will receive a Bt100,000 scholarship and training to sharpen their science communication skills and represent Thailand in the international competition.

FameLab 2021 provides “platforms for researchers and STEM enthusiasts to demonstrate the positive impact of science on society and convey how science can be fun in just three minutes”, said Helga Stellmacher, director of the British Council, which is organising the contest alongside the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation.

“Through FameLab, we enable researchers to connect, share knowledge and most importantly bridge the gap between science and society, enhancing equality and diversity in science,” Stellmacher added.

TrueVisions has been involved in FameLab for the past six years and will live-broadcast this year’s competition on its True VROOM platform.

FameLab Thailand 2021 is open for applications until May 3 at www.britishcouncil.or.th/famelab or the British Council Thailand Facebook page. The final competition will take place in August.
