The Royal Academy of Engineering is calling for applications to the Ingenious fund to develop public engagement activities which:
- “inspire creative public engagement with engineering projects
- stimulate engineers to share their stories, passion and expertise in innovative ways with wider audiences
- develop engineers’ communication and engagement skills
- create debate between engineers and people of all ages to raise awareness of the diversity, nature and impact of engineering”.
Given BU’s excellence in engineering, this is a great opportunities for colleagues to take their work to a far wider audience. Inspiration can be found from the case studies that are available here.
Grants are available for between £3,000 and £30,000. Further details on how to apply can be found here.
The deadline for applications is 21st September 2012.
