Encouraging Collaboration BRC Public Engagement Fund

by | Aug 24, 2018

The Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is offering funding for BRC researchers, staff and students to develop and deliver projects and activities that engage the public in BRC research in line with the Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement strategy.

This fund aims to:

  • Encourage collaborative working between BRC themes and provide support for the BRC cross-cutting themes;
  • Support imaginative approaches to engaging diverse audiences;
  • Increase awareness amongst people and patients about opportunities to participate in BRC research (especially in groups/geographies with currently low participation rates).

Awards: We expect applications in the region of £1,000 – £3,000 per project.
