Is it easier for chemists to implement interpersonal chemistry in real life? Can physicists use what they know about gravity to attract someone?
Inauguration meeting of the FameLab – Science Advocates Programme took place on December 11, 2014. Seven science journalists and fifteen finalists of 3 editions of FameLab met in the Copernicus Science Centre for… speed dating. Each pair of participants had only 3 minutes to convince each other that their cooperation would be a great idea. And despite the crazy pace, they did it!

The aim of the Science Advocates Programme is to create an opportunity for establishment of relations and cooperation between scientists, who want to develop their science popularising skills and journalists with broad experience in this field. Famelabbers learn from the masters of communication, while journalists can gain access to interesting topics and learn about the scientists’ work behind-the-scenes. All that for opening scientists and the society for mutual dialogue.
