Engaging Environments funding call

The NERC public engagement call (‘Engaging Environments’) inviting proposals for consortium and capacity building projects costing between £50k and £100k has been announced:

This consortium and capacity building stage aims to build a long-term, effective and innovative public engagement community, and support the formation of collaborative teams who will then go on, in a second stage, to bid to lead one, ambitious, large-scale project that will achieve national impact and recognition in engaging the UK public with contemporary issues of environmental science.

NERC’s desired outcomes for this stage:

  1. Capacity to lead and deliver effective, national-scale public engagement with contemporary issues of environmental science through collaborations and partnerships that drive forward the debate and deliver innovative public engagement.
  2. Strengthened capacity within the environmental science research community and beyond in order to foster excellence in the quality of future public engagement activity.
