National competition for public engagement with research launched

Are you involved in public engagement with research, either as a member of staff or as a student?

Have you been involved in a great project, or one that’s ongoing, that you wish to share?

Then why not enter the Engage 2014 Competition?

The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) are running a national competition to find and celebrate high quality public engagement with research projects. 

Across the UK, researchers are engaging the public in lots of different ways and for lots of different reasons. The NCCPE wish to recognise and reward great quality examples of public engagement in practice - they’re interested in applications covering projects from all disciplines, of any size, length and cost.

Shortlisted finalists will be invited to showcase their projects at an event at the Natural History Museum in London during Universities Week (9 – 15 June 2014) where the overall winner will be announced. That winner will receive £2,500 to develop or share their engagement work with others.

Further details, including how to apply, can be found at:
