The council is on the hunt for ICT researchers keen for a public engagement sideline
- This call is not for public engagement novices, but upskilling successful applicants is a goal of the funding.
- Projects should seek to engage a specific audience and propose bespoke activities to do that.
- Ambition is a watchword; bids simply proposing standard workshops will fail.
- Bids must address equality, diversity and inclusion.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council’s Public Engagement for Information and Communication Technologies scheme will fund around 10 researchers to undertake public engagement activities alongside their core research.
