The BIS Science and Society team have launched a new Community Challenge Grant Scheme to encourage innovative ways of engaging with audiences currently under-served by existing science engagement activities. We aim to provide funding for pilot projects that investigate and test new methods of engagement and participation.

There will be 3 levels of project funding: up to £10,000, up to £20,000 and up to £40,000, depending on the size and difficulty of the project.

Deadline for applications: By noon, 16 May 2014
