This funding, previously known as the Provision for Public Engagement, helps Wellcome grant holders engage the public with their research.
Public engagement activities – where researchers share their ideas with the public and in return get new perspectives on their research – can inspire learning, enhance research and help to improve health.
Up to £250,000, or 5% of the funding awarded under your main Wellcome grant.
This scheme repeats in April and July.
