Science Learning+: The Power of Learning

Learning can happen anywhere and at any time. Science Learning+ aims to make a transformational step to improve the knowledge base and practice of informal science experiences, so as to better understand, strengthen and coordinate their vital role in science engagement and learning.Science Learning+ includes funding for collaborative projects involving both researchers and practitioners of informal learning. Individuals from other academic fields are also invited to contribute to building understanding – including researchers in science education, disciplinary sciences (such as mathematicians, biologists, engineers or computer scientists), social sciences, psychology, learning sciences and cognitive science.


Science Learning+ grants will be funded in two phases:

The deadline for Phase 1 is 10 July 2014. Applicants in the UK or the Republic of Ireland should apply through the Wellcome Trust. For more information about this initiative and how to apply, visit
