The Public Engagement team is pleased to launch a new and exciting opportunity that gives University of Cambridge researchers the chance to apply for small grants to undertake innovative, research-focused public engagement activities.
We are looking for novel projects based on contemporary research at the University of Cambridge which aims to do one or more of the following:
Reach a specific target audience
Develop a partnership with a community of interest
Create an innovative activity for Cambridge Science Festival or Cambridge Festival of Ideas
Note: If you plan to build on an existing public engagement project you must demonstrate how this grant will support a significant new development or change in direction.
Applicants can apply for grants ranging from £300 - £3,000. Proposed projects can take a variety of formats, provided a clear rationale is given regarding the appropriateness of the method of engagement adopted, and how the necessary resources and expertise will be secured.
Activities must take place by the end of March 2017. Upon completion of the project, applicants must submit a short concluding report including thorough evaluation. Successful applicants will be supported by the University Public Engagement team with appropriate advice and training.
