According to Mr Soranit Siltharm, Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Science and Technology, science communication skill is necessary for those in the field of science to enable them to communicate and explain to the public the importance of each science field and their various roles for driving the country's growth. Science communicators will be the key to making the public realise how important science is for developing society, people's livelihoods and the country's economy. The FameLab project aims to connect those in the science fields with people in society and to simplify and make science more accessible for everyone. The project is also in line with the strategy of the Ministry of Science and Technology to create awareness of science, technology and innovation in order to enhance the country's competitiveness and develop the economy, society and the environment.

Mr Andrew Glass OBE, Director of British Council Thailand, states that FameLab is a global competition in which participants have three minutes to give a fun, scientific talk with excellent, easy-to-understand content. This is the fourth consecutive year FameLab has been held in Thailand to search for a national representative to join the Cheltenham Science Festival and the global competition in the United Kingdom from 3–9 June 2019. In cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Technology, True Corporation and other alliances, British Council hosts FameLab to promote the awareness of science to the public.

Science communication can help people understand the importance of science and aware of what is happening around them.
