ISSF will be used to support a Public Engagement catalyst fund. The aim is to lower the barrier for active researchers by providing seed funding that fosters cross-disciplinary activity with artists, animators, writers and scientists.
Eligibility: Applications are welcome from all staff groups and students.
Remit: Provide seed funds to competitive researcher driven projects to develop novel public engagement ideas within the Wellcome Trust remit that have an 'improve health' focus.
Assessment: Projects submitted for funding will be assessed by an internal peer review process to ensure quality.
Calls: We accept applications all year round. Please ensure that you submit your form a minimum of 2 months before your event.
