The regional pre-selection of the FameLab Timișoara contest will take place at the Politehnica University of Timișoara, on March 30, 2018, starting at 10 a.m., in the Multipurpose Hall in the UPT Library building (Blvd. Vasile Parvan No. 2B). FameLab 2018, the UK's leading international public science communication competition, is open to young people aged 21-40 studying or working in engineering, medicine, technology, biology, chemistry, physics or mathematics.

Competitors choose a topic from their field of specialization and present it to a panel of scientific and media personalities in front of an audience.

Participation in the regional selections within the FameLab 2018 competition is done by giving a 3-minute presentation during the selection events, which will take place during the months of March and April, in the cities of Bucharest, Cluj, Timișoara, Târgu Mureș and Lași. You can find details about the venues and scheduling of the selection events on the project page on the British Council Romania website:

The winners of the preselections will be invited to participate in a masterclass organized between April 28-29, to improve essential media communication and presentation skills. The national final will take place in Bucharest, in the last week of May.

Competitors must give their presentations in the competition in Romanian, but they must master English at an advanced level to be able to participate in the training and, in the event of winning the competition, in the finals in England.

The deadline for submitting applications is March 28, 2018. More details can be found in the presentation attached to this article:
