Ring-fenced funds for public engagement within Wellcome Trust research grants

  Created on Tuesday, 09 Sep 2014. Posted in Public Involvement | Costing

The Wellcome Trust expects all of their major research groups to engage with the public about their work. To support this, they are providing ring-fenced funds for public engagement within the research grants. Researchers are invited to plan how to inform, consult and collaborate with the non-academic public over the lifetime of your research project and cost for this appropriately at the time of application or post-award.

Activities can take any form, such as blogs, exhibitions, games, drama, collaborations with schools or artists, and creating opportunities for the public to inform research. For more information, please read the guidance information.
