Wellcome Hub Awards, deadline 13 June 2019
25 March 2019
Public Engagement - funding
The Wellcome Trust invites preliminary applications for its hub award. This brings researchers and creative professionals together at Wellcome Collection to work as a collaborative residency. The trust encourages applications from groups to produce new insights, methodologies and interventions that will either build on existing knowledge or focus on a new field of research.
Groups of four to six people have been funded in the past. They should bring together people from different professional backgrounds such as health, the arts and academia.
The award includes the use of space within the hub and funding of up to £1 million over a period of two years. Funding may be used to cover salary costs and project expenses such as equipment, materials, travel, events and public engagement activities.
