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 and do send me an email or give me a call if you have any questions.
