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.
These studentships offer financial support for up to three PhD-level biomedical scientists to undertake postgraduate qualifications at Imperial College London or the National Film and Television School (NFTS).
Our research shows that the overwhelming majority of the public regard television as their most significant source of information about science. We believe that the broadcast media should represent and reflect all areas of science and culture, and therefore should be produced by people from a variety of different backgrounds.
This aims to develop innovative and ground breaking new technologies in the biomedical area. Projects must address an unmet need in healthcare or applied medical research with a demonstrated proof of principle supported by experimental data. The trust is particularly keen to receive proposals in novel biomedicine that seek to restore function to the body. However, projects covering any aspect of technology development from a range of disciplines, including physical, computational and life sciences, will be considered.
