The Royal Society of Biology invites nominations for its science communication awards. These recognise biosciences researchers who make an outstanding and consistent contribution to communicating science to the public. There are two award categories:
The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its engagement fellowships. These aim to support and develop upcoming stars in public engagement with science.
Applicants should be based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland, and have at least three years’ experience engaging the public with science. They may be professional science communicators, research scientists, medical historians, clinicians or professionals working in the arts.
The Wellcome Trust invites expressions of interest for its international engagement awards. These support innovative public or community engagement projects that explore biomedical research or health in Africa and Asia.
CBMNet public engagement grants are for projects that encourage the public to explore industrial biotechnology, its impact on society and culture, its historical roots or the ethical questions that it raises. This scheme is open to all CBMNet members and each grant is up to £500.
The British Society for Geomorphology invites applications for its geomorphological outreach grant. This enables members to organise geomorphological outreach activities involving schools, the general public or industry.
The Society for Applied Microbiology invites applications for its public engagement grant. This supports events where aspects of microbiology are promoted to the general public and other relevant stakeholders.
The Medical Research Foundation invites applications for grants from the Alexander Fleming dissemination scheme. This scheme provides funding to support the dissemination of MRC and Medical Research Foundation-funded research results beyond the scientific peer reviewed press, to patients, participants, practitioners and policymakers.
The Society wishes to support scientific outreach activities that communicate the excitement of molecular bioscience to young people and the community. Applications are invited for sums up to £1000 to assist with the direct costs associated with an event and expenses incurred (e.g. transport and/or teacher cover).
The EPSRC-funded Balance Network aims to link academics with business, policy and user groups interested in the role that digital technologies are playing in (re)shaping our work and home lives. We are now inviting applications for the funding of events which further these aims, and which will form part of the network’s programme of activities between November 2015 and April 2016.
