IoP Public Engagement Grants – open

The Institute of Physics invites applications for its public engagement grants. These support individuals and organisations running physics-based events and activities in the UK and Ireland. The aim is to encourage and support the development of projects that:

  • raise public awareness of, and engagement with, contemporary physics;
  • inspire and enthuse public audiences, especially those not previously interested in physics;
  • reach adult and family audiences beyond the classroom;
  • develop the science communication skills of individuals, particularly physicists.

Eligible applicants include members of the institute, researchers in academia or industry, museums, community groups, not-for-profit organisations, arts groups and libraries.

Grants are worth up to £2,000 each. Full details here.
