June 2019

The UK’s science, research, and innovation are amongst its greatest strengths, and significant drivers of attractiveness for the country in the eyes of people overseas.  Our universities and academic research are agreed to be world leading by almost three quarters of young people across the G20 (according to surveys carried out by the British Council).  

Since 2007, the British Council has partnered with the Cheltenham Science Festival in managing a training programme and competition for young science communicators that now reaches millions of people around the world.  This year, for the first time, the global winner of FameLab International is from the UK: Tim Gordon, a marine biology PhD student at the University of Exeter, for his work on the impact of climate change on coral reefs.
