Public Engagement at Manchester

International Women’s Day Grants now open

Working with a community group or organisation? Would you consider running an event for International Women’s Day in March?

Manchester City Council have launched their International Women’s Day grants for events or activities run in the week commencing 1 March 2016.

To be eligible applicants need to be non-for-profit or an informal group endorsed by an established organisation, therefore your community partners would have to apply. The event or activity should be run predominantly by women and be predominantly for women and girls. It should also benefit Manchester residents.

Ingenious Public Engagement Grants – Closing 7 September

There’s just two weeks to go to get your applications submitted to the Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenious grant scheme for engineering engagement projects.

The deadline is 4pm on Monday 7 September 2015.

We’re offering £3,000 to £30,000 for projects that engage the public with engineers and engineering and aim to:

  • inspire creative public engagement with engineering
  • 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

All Ingenious projects should engage the public with engineering while also providing engineers with skills and opportunities in public engagement, and we welcome proposals from engineers, universities, science and engineering communicators and engagement professionals, colleges and schools.

There’s lots more info on our website at http://www.raeng.org.uk/ingenious and do send me an email or give me a call if you have any questions.
