Public Engagement - funding
The Royal Academy of Engineering’s Ingenious public engagement grants are now open for the 2019 round. Funding is available from £3,000 to £30,000.
The scheme supports projects that engage the public with engineers and engineering while providing engineers with skills and opportunities in public engagement.
Deadline 4pm on Monday 23 November 2019
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 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.
