Public Engagement Proof-of-Concept Award

This scheme is currently closed

This award will consider applications for small-scale proof-of-concept public engagement.

Following on from the College’s successful award of a third round of Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF), funding is available for Wellcome Trust ISSF3 Public Engagement Proof-of-Concept awards.

The ISSF3 Public Engagement Proof-of-Concept award will consider applications for new and innovative small-scale proof-of-concept public engagement up to £7,500.

Before applying for the award, applicants can take advantage of a suite of public engagement training opportunities which have been developed to place applicants in a competitive position to apply for the ISSF3 Public Engagement Proof-of-Concept award.

The Public Engagement Development Programme enables researchers to present and discuss their engagement ideas, and develop an approach that facilitates a two-way dialogue with the public. Coverage of evaluation methods will ensure we can demonstrate that the public engagement activity has benefited the public’s perceptions/ engagement with the topic.

Once fully matured, applications for small-scale proof-of-concept public engagement will be considered by the College Engagement Panel.

We have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of support we have received for our mental health in gaming project, JAMMIND. Not only support from the Wellcome Trust in funding the application, but from collaborators such as the National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH) and Games Wales.
