Calling all scientists and engineers – looking to engage new audiences with your research?

Wonder Match Manchester – Tuesday 8 October, at Bridge 5 Mill.

Are you a scientist or engineer who would like to engage with new audiences with your research?

There is funding available to help this happen! Come to a Wonder Match event to find out more…

Wonder Match provides an opportunity to find out how you could access up to £15,000 for projects that support diverse audiences to engage with STFC-related science and technology. This event will be a chance to hear from the funders, find out about the STFC Spark Award, and meet potential project partners from community organisations.

You will also have the chance to apply for up to £1000 of ‘thinking funding’ to help you establish and develop community partnerships that could strengthen your Spark Award application.
