In 2014 Aurubis Bulgaria supports the 8th edition of “FameLab” contest in search of young people, Bulgarian and foreign students, scientists and teachers willing to talk about their work and share the attractive side of their scientific career. 

The competition is international, held in original British format and now includes more than 25 countries worldwide. Our country is involved in it since its inception eight years ago, and organizers of the Bulgarian edition are the British Council and the Ministry of Education and Science.

Within the competition, Aurubis Bulgaria reserves its right ‘to give a special award to one of the finalists. The award will include a financial incentive to participants and the opportunity to spend a few days with a team of production specialists in Pirdop where he will be introduced to the details of the processes and technologies in one of the most modern metallurgical plants in Europe. 

„Aurubis traditionally supports the development of education and young people. We believe that FameLab is a successful racing format through which people talk about science and scientific achievements in understandable and attractive way”, said Elena Dimova, Director Human Resources for South Eastern Europe.

FameLab international competition aims to support and encourage talented young people who want to develop their communication skills in order to communicate more successfully their science to the generic public, not just in their own scientific circles. Thus creating an international network of participants in the competition where young people from different countries and cultures begin to work together and create impressive projects in science communication. 

The dates of the first two auditions are in Sofia on March 1st, Plovdiv on March 15th and in Pleven on March 22nd.  Casting finalists will undergo a master class in science communication at the end of April, which will be led by one of the best British experts in the communication field. Frank Burnett was the first professor in Science communication discipline in the UK and is a founding member of the Cheltenham Science Festival. He graduated in Biochemistry University of St Andrews, and later his PhD in Neuroendocrinology at the University of Oxford.
