Closing date for applications: 4pm, Monday 1 October 2018

Ingenious, the Royal Academy of Engineering’s public engagement grant scheme is now open for applications.

Apply now for funding for between £3,000 and £30,000.

If you or your colleagues have an imaginative idea that could help engineers to communicate their expertise and passion for engineering to a wider audience, the Academy wants to hear from you. You could be an engineer interested in running your own project, or a science or engineering public engagement professional keen to explore ways to provide public engagement training and opportunities.

Ingenious is an grant scheme for projects that engage the public with engineers and engineering. Ingenious projects provide opportunities for engineers to take part in public engagement activities, to gain skills in communication and to bring engineering to the very centre of society.

Ingenious aims to:

  • inspire creative public engagement with engineering projects
  • motivate engineers to share their stories, passion and expertise with wider audiences and develop their communication and engagement skills
  • raise awareness of the diversity, nature and impact of engineering among people of all ages and backgrounds
  • provide opportunities for engineers to engage with members of the public from groups currently underrepresented in engineering

The Royal Academy of Engineering prioritises projects that reach diverse and underrepresented audiences including communities in the top 25% most deprived neighbourhoods in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and that engage with engineers and people of different genders, ages and ethnic backgrounds.

The Academy welcome proposals from engineers, universities, science and engineering communicators and engagement professionals, colleges and schools.

Funding will be awarded in April 2019 with projects running from May 2019 to July 2020.
