These support projects that enable the public to explore biomedical science and its impact on society and culture, its historical roots and the ethical questions it raises. The scheme aims to:
- stimulate interest, excitement and debate about biomedical science or the history of medicine;
- support formal and informal learning;
- reach audiences of all ages and from all walks of life, and inform, inspire and involve them;
- encourage high-quality interdisciplinary practice and collaborations;
- investigate and test new methods of engagement, participation and education.
Applicants must be based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland and the primary audience engagement must take place in these locations as well. Individuals may apply, but applicants are usually affiliated with organisations. Each project must include scientific input either through a scientist taking on an advisory role or through direct collaboration.
Each award is worth up to £30,000. Closing date – 25th April 2014
