This scheme provides funds up to £1000 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.

Applications are open to:

  • HIS members who are based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland.
  • Teams (where at least one individual is a member of HIS) that include an expert in public engagement or science communication (with a minimum of 12 months experience), and an IPC expert who are based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland
