FameLab International Final 2013

For the first time the Italian regional selection of the Science Talent Show Famelab, was held in Genoa. The Genoa stop-over has been organized by the Science Festival Association in collaboration with Cnr-Psc, the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia and Scientificast. A lucky date for Ilaria Zanardi, finalist in Genoa’s regional selections, who just won the title of national finalist in Perugia in May.

Saturday, 16th of March, in the San Salvatore lecture theater, eight candidates between researchers and master students ‘under 40’ coming from Piemonte, Lombardia, Liguria and Switzerland, have been challenging themselves in an exciting competition in trying to captivate and tell the audience in just three minutes about a chosen scientific topic.

The committee who quizzed the contestants with motivational questions and jokingly provoked them, was composed by Prof. Giuseppe Rosolini, Professor of Logic at University of Genoa, Francesca Messina, Cnr-Psc’s head of science divulgation, Stefania Girotto, team leader of drugs’ discovery and development division at IIT and Marina Minetti, actress and presenter at Radio 19.

The winner and the runner up met the finalists from the other regional selections in the national final which was held in Perugia on the 3rd of May. The Italian final of FameLab 2013, organized by Psi Quadro Association, within the ‘Perugia Science Festival’ was won by Ilaria Zanardi, 33 years old, researcher at Istituto di Biofisica, CNR of Genova (IBF-CNR). Next June Ilaria will represent Italy in Cheltenham (UK) during the international final among 25 different countries.
