Enabling Fund for Public Engagement using Remote Methods

Helping turn great public engagement ideas into reality

This round of the Enabling Fund will support great ideas for public engagement using remote means, and is open to staff and students across the Campus. Awards of up to £1,500 are available on a competitive basis. Applications should be based around an area of science that takes place at the Wellcome Genome Campus.

Projects should reflect quality and innovation, while strictly adhering to the social distancing measures in place by the UK Government.

Examples of events that can take place remotely might include:

  • Original, one-off, online events such as discussions, workshops, or demonstrations
  • Citizen science style projects
  • Collaborative projects that work with community groups or cultural partners
  • Creating education or informal learning materials for home learning

Applications can be made at any time up until Friday 8 May and will be reviewed on a rolling basis to allow projects to start as soon as possible. If you want to discuss your idea in advance, drop us a line at engage@wgc.org.uk.

The full terms and guidance for the fund and safeguarding guidance for online engagement, together with the application form are available to download below.
