On Sunday 6 September, the postponed Czech National FameLab 2020 Final took place in modern, roof-top premises of CIIRC at CTU. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the number of people in the audience had to be limited.
- Marie Vanišová-Rodinová (biologist, FameLab 2011 finalist),
- Michael Londesborough (chemist and science communicator)
- Jan Klusák (physicist, FameLab 2012 national winner)
The jury members had, yet again, the very difficult task of deciding who the awarded contestants would be. Focusing on the scientific content, clarity of presentation and charisma of the competitors they reached the following decision:
THE NATIONAL WINNER of FameLab 2020 Czech Republic: JANA PILÁTOVÁ (Charles University, Prague). Jana will represent the Czech Republic at the FameLab International Final, which has been rescheduled to November and will be streamed online.
The CZECH CENTRES PRIZE was awarded to ANNU KALA (Charles University, Pilsen) who will be spending a week-long residency at one of the European Czech Centre offices in 2021.
THE BRITISH EMBASSY AWARD (RUNNER-UP) went to JOSHUA SMITH (IOCB Prague)
Congratulations to all contestants for their fantastic shows. We wish you all the best of luck in your future science communication careers.
