Grant to embed engagement - Announcement of Opportunity

Closing date for outline proposals: 16:00 on Monday 30 September 2019

NERC is creating a new strategy for public engagement with environmental science research.

The success of the strategy deeply relies on our partners and stakeholders that we create and collaborate with. This includes ensuring that it assists institutions, which enable engaged research to thrive. To support this, we are inviting proposals for small projects which will demonstrate how the NERC public engagement with research strategy aligns with activity that our community and institutions are, and plan to be, delivering.

Successful proposals will receive between £2,000 and £5,000 to deliver the project between November 2019 and March 2020. One page proposals for projects must be submitted by 16:00 on Monday 30 September 2019. Shortlisted projects will be invited to present their proposal on Tuesday 15 October and will be advised on the day if they have been successful.

Applicants are referred to the Announcement of Opportunity document below for further details.
