FameLab 19/20 Heat @ FABI

Venue: FABI, University of Pretoria, South Africa
Date: 4th - 5th February 2020
In 2020, FABI will host a FameLab heat with a focus on plant health. 
2020 has been declared the International Year of Plant Health by the United Nations General Assembly to raise awareness on how protecting plant health will end hunger, reduce poverty, protect the environment and develop economic development. FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world and an incredibly exciting platform in which we can showcase South African plant health research.
By taking part in FameLab, you will inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, gain valuable communication skills, and meet amazing like-minded people. Importantly, you will also become part of an increasingly exciting network of scientists and engineers able to clearly and imaginatively explain their science to the general public.
We are encouraging anyone who works or does research in the plant health space to enter our heat. This winner of this heat will go on to compete in the national final for a chance to represent South Africa in the international competition in the UK.
