Chris Curtin (Swinburne) has asked me to forward information on FameLab 2017 to all early career research astronomers and students in the ASA.  It’s similar to the 3-minute thesis competition.

The British Council is looking for passionate STEM researchers with a flair for public engagement to compete in the 2017 round of its international science communication competition, FameLab.

Over the past three years, some of Australia’s most impressive scientists have presented their research on stage in their quest to represent Australia at the FameLab International Final in the UK. This year, it could be you!

If you’re passionate about science, want to improve your presentation and communication skills, meet leading researchers from across the world and win an expenses-paid trip to the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK, visit www.famelab.org.au<http://www.famelab.org.au>.
Applications open on 9 January and close on 24 February 2017.

Further information is in the attachment.
