Open to all environmental scientists working in NERC’s remit – you don’t have to be NERC-funded to apply.
If you would like to increase the impact of your environmental science research, and want to improve your skills in using public engagement to achieve this, then the NERC Impact Development Programme could be for you.
In partnership with the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement, the programme will cover the breadth of issues you might encounter, from choosing the best type of public engagement for your specific research; to working through practical issues; to considering how to evaluate your public engagement to find out if it was worth it.
The Impact Development Programme is a dynamic nine-month professional development opportunity for environmental science researchers to work with the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) to develop their skills in delivering high quality engagement with impact. The programme is free for researchers to take part in. The programme components include 2 online events, networking opportunities and peer learning.
