The Royal Academy of Engineering’s Ingenious public engagement grants will be open for applications in July. Funding is available from £3,000 to £30,000.
The scheme supports engagement with engineering and engineers and aims to build capacity for engagement by engineers.
Deadline 4pm on Monday 1 October 2018
The Ingenious awards programme aims to:
- inspire creative public engagement with engineering projects
- motivate engineers to share their stories, passion and expertise with wider audiences and develop their communication and engagement skills
- raise awareness of the diversity, nature and impact of engineering among people of all ages and backgrounds
- provide opportunities for engineers to engage with members of the public from groups currently underrepresented in engineering.
Projects that reach diverse and underrepresented audiences including communities in the top 25% most deprived neighbourhoods in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and that engage with engineers and people of different genders, ages and ethnic backgrounds are prioritised.
