Public Engagement Spark Awards – £15,000 Available to Highlight Science and Technology Achievements (UK)

The Science and Technology Facilities (STFC) Council has announced that its Public Engagement Spark Awards will re-open for applications on the 28th February 2018.  Awards of up to £15,000 will be available to schools as well as STFC scientists and engineers, facility users, museums, science communicators, and amateur astronomy groups to:

  • Encourage and support novel, high-quality public engagement activities that highlight STFC’s science and technology;
  • Introduce STFC science and technology to new audiences;
  • Highlight the achievements of STFC science and technology, demonstrating the excitement of research and the value of STEM to the UK.

Every application must include a researcher in an STFC-funded area of science or technology. While these researchers often play an active role in delivering the engagement activities, this is not mandatory – they may act as an advisor on the scientific content.
