Public Engagement Fund

Funding of up to £5k is available (consideration will be given for funding above this maximum threshold if sufficient justification of the exceptional nature of the project is provided)

To stimulate a broad range of suitable approaches to impact, the public engagement fund will seek to support public engagement within the social sciences and promote the public understanding of social science and the impacts of research on cultural life. This fund will aim to promote accessible forms of dissemination and knowledge exchange both face-to-face and through social media.
This funding could be used for but not limited to:

  • Deliberative public forums;
  • Consensus conferences;
  • Participatory performance art/theatre and exhibitions;
  • Workshops;
  • Online content for a public audience;
  • Short documentaries and animations.

One funding call will be released twice per year for the public engagement fund (dates indicated in the timetable below).
Please note that it will be the responsibility of the successful awardees to organise and administer any events in relation to this fund.
