Public Engagement - awards
The European Research Council’s (ERC) Public Engagement with Research Award 2020 is designed to recognize and celebrate ERC grantees who have demonstrated excellence in public engagement and outreach.
ERC grantees have a contractual obligation to communicate their project and many of them are outstanding science communicators. The ERC would like to recognise those who make an extra effort to engage with audiences outside their domain to effectively communicate their research funded by the European Union.
One award will be granted in each of the following three categories:
- public outreach
- press and media relations
- online and social media
Research projects which have received funding from ERC, and are either running or finished less than two years ago, may apply.
The criteria that applications will be judged by are: quality, creativity and originality, and impact.
Awards include free registration to the EuroScience Open Forum in Trieste, July 2020, travel and accommodation, a trophy, and the opportunity to be featured in ERC communication channels.
The deadline to apply is 5pm CET 10 Jan 2020.
