Calls for proposals to Ingenious – the Royal Academy of Engineering’s grant scheme for creative engagement with engineering are now open.

If you have an imaginative idea that could help engineers to communicate their expertise and passion for engineering to a wider audience, we want to hear from you. You could be an engineer interested in running your own project, or a science and engineering communicator keen to explore ways to provide public engagement training and opportunities.

The aims of Ingenious are to:

  • inspire creative public engagement with engineering projects
  • 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.

If you’re an individual or an organisation with an Ingenious idea, apply now for funding for up to £30,000.

For more information visit or contact Manisha Lalloo at or 020 7766 0683.

The closing date for applications is 30 September 2013.
