Public Engagement - awards
Engaging people with research can change the world. Are you proud of a piece of work where you’ve engaged the public, patients or community groups with research? Could your project be an inspiration to others?
Wellcome is currently looking for 25 case studies to illustrate and celebrate what outcomes-focussed public engagement from across the globe, big and small, from any discipline or sector.
Researchers often ask for concrete examples of outcomes-focussed public engagement, so they want to find and publish 25 tangible examples to support and inspire them to do public engagement that makes a difference to the way research is carried out or its impact on society.
Wellcome are keen for science and health researchers to learn from one another, but also from how people in other disciplines and sectors have engaged the public with their work in an outcomes-focussed way. Those chosen as the ‘top 25’ will be published and showcased within the research community to inspire researchers to do public engagement that makes a difference.
To make your submission you simply fill in a short form on their site.
The deadline for submissions is 5pm 8th November 2019.
