The Healthcare Infection Society provides funds to support events where aspects of clinical microbiology, infection prevention and control, and healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) are promoted to the public and other relevant stakeholders.
Events eligible for support can be diverse (pieces of art to popular music) or funds may be used to aid individuals to exhibit at public science festivals. The main criterion is that the event/activity must promote the science of microbiology in the context of (HCAIs). Priority for funding will be given to activities/events that would not go ahead without support.
The application must include a member of the society based in the UK or Republic of Ireland.
This scheme repeats in March and September.
The Healthcare Society provide information about previously funded projects on their website, which are worth looking at for inspiration and to see the sort of projects they support.
