Wellcome are searching for examples of great public engagement. Submissions close: 8 November 2019 17:00 GMT.
Engaging people with research can change the world. Are you proud of a piece of work where you’ve engaged the public, patients or community groups with research? Could your project be an inspiration to others? Then Wellcome would like to hear from you.
Your public engagement example can be:
- from any discipline, not just health and science research
- from anywhere in the world
- from any sector – there are lots of great examples of engaging the public outside of academia, such as in charities and social enterprises (like this one (opens in a new tab)) or industry (like this one (opens in a new tab))
- of any size – great examples can be easily achievable and low-cost, or big and shiny
with or without Wellcome funding.
The best examples will focus on outcomes, clearly demonstrating how engaging the public has made a difference.If your example gets selected, we will work with you next year to publish it as part of a series of case studies which we’ll showcase within the research community.
