Public Engagement - funding
he European Geoscience Union invites applications for its public engagement grants. These recognise science communications in the Earth, planetary and space science and support the development of outreach projects that raise awareness of geoscience outside the scientific community.
There are no restrictions on the format of the project or proposed activity and ideas may include comics, podcasts, documentaries and experiments.
Projects aimed at engaging with hard-to-reach audiences, such as people or communities who are not generally interested in science, are particularly encouraged.
Three grants worth €1,500 each are available. Selected applicants will also receive a free registration for the EGU 2021 general assembly and have the opportunity to present their projects there. The grants are for 12 months.
Please note that only active EGU members, who either have a regular, student, emeritus or complementary membership for 2019 or 2020, or who are life or honorary members of the EGU, are eligible to apply for the grants.
Deadline is 15 February 2020.
