FameLab has a wide variety of national partners, without which the competition would not be possible.

The competition was introduced in Egypt in 2009 in support of the government’s efforts to advance science and to build a culture that understands and supports the positive role science plays in economic and social well-being. The competition is presented in Egypt by the British Council, and since 2017 our local partner has been the Academy of Scientific Research & Technology

By partnering with and supporting FameLab you will join a leading line up of organisations and individuals who appreciate and value the work that Famelab does and its influence across a wide area of science communication.

Partnering with FameLab means:

  • Access to a fantastic ‘alumni’ of some of the best young communicators in the country
  • Helping to make sure that science and engineering are promoted at the grassroots level
  • Contributing to the development of young talent
  • Leading the way for organisations and companies to recognise the value of public engagement

If you are interested in becoming associated with this exciting and world leading programme to identify, train and mentor tomorrow's science and engineering communicators, then please contact us.

Get involved with this fantastic competition and work with us to develop it to the next level!
