British Council Australia is pleased to announce that Gabrielle Tramby,
Programme Manager at the Australian Science Festival, is this year's
recipient of the Science Communicators Award. 

Gabrielle was chosen from a highly competitive field of Science
Communicators throughout Australia for her passion for science communication
and her commitment to sharing what she learns in the UK to her Australian
colleagues upon her return. 

British Council Australia seeks to build networks between young Australian
professionals and their UK contemporaries.

The Award will enable Gabrielle to spend two weeks in the UK, initially to
attend the Science Communication Forum at the Edinburgh International
Science Festival in April. Gabrielle will be one of twenty-four
international delegates participating in the Forum covering topics such as
science journalism, PR and science events (including festivals). She will
also have the opportunity to attend the prestigious Edinburgh Medal award
ceremony and other high profile festival events.

Gabrielle will spend the following week developing professional networks
with prominent science communication organisations across the UK including
the Royal Institution, Wellcome Trust, Planet Science, Royal Society, and
leading science magazines NewScientist and Nature.

As part of her UK adventure, Gabrielle will be keeping an on-line diary to
be featured on British Council Australia's science website www.mindsetuk.com
<http://www.mindsetuk.com>.  Gabrielle will be available to discuss her UK
experience and networks with colleagues on her return.
