The Healthcare Infection Society (HIS) invites applications for its public engagement awards. These support events where aspects of clinical microbiology, infection prevention and control, and healthcare associated infections are promoted to the public and other relevant stakeholders.
Events eligible for support can be very diverse or funds may be used to aid individuals to attend and exhibit at public science festivals. The main criterion is that the event or activity must in some way promote the science of microbiology.
The award is worth up to £1,000.
Deadline is 1 September (with another deadline in March 2019).
