£15,000 available to highlight science and technology achievements

The Science and Technology Facilities (STFC) Council’s Public Engagement Spark Awards have returned.

Awards of up to £15,000 are available to schools and STFC scientists and engineers, facility users, museums, science communicators, and amateur astronomy groups to:

  • encourage and support 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.

The closing date for applications is Thursday 19 April 2018.
