The Physiological Society is offering grants of up to £5000 to support public engagement. The grants, which are available to both members and non-members, are designed to fund innovative and creative projects on any aspect of physiology. We particularly encourage collaborations between science communicators, artists, facilitators of public engagement, and our members.
We are open to any ideas from you as to how physiologists can engage with the public. We are especially keen to receive project applications which fit under our 2018 focus sleep and circadian rhythm.
I am happy to talk through projects, help with queries, and put you in touch with interested physiologists. I’ll be leaving The Society at the start of December, so if you would like to chat I’d advise getting in touch sooner rather than later.
The scheme is open year-round with two funding rounds. The next deadline for applications is Sunday 14 January 2018. The review period will take 6-8 weeks.
