Public Engagement Pathways grants

If you have an idea to use public engagement to generate impact from your research, a Public Engagement Pathways grant of up to £5000 could be for you.

The Public Engagement Pathways grants are funded as part of UCL’s Impact Acceleration Account from EPSRC.

To apply, you must be a member of staff or a postgraduate research student in the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, UCL Engineering, and the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (BEAMS). It is also open to members of staff in other departments who have EPSRC funding (or have had EPSRC funding that expired in 2012 or later).

To apply, you must complete a short form. It is strongly recommended that applicants read the guidance provided:

UPDATED July 2014: Pathways grants application form (MS Word 2010)

UPDATED July 2014: Pathways grants application guidance (pdf)

July 2014 update: The updated version of the guidance notes contains new information regarding letters of support from partner organisations. The application form now has an additional question suggested

The scheme will run until 23 December 2014 (or sooner if the funds are allocated before this date), during which period £90 000 will be available from the fund. We encourage applications as early as possible.

Activities funded by these grants must be completed by 31 July 2015, although they may be part of an ongoing project.

The scheme operates on a rolling basis and will normally inform applicants of the panel’s decision within four weeks of receiving an application. Applications and letters of support should be submitted to Hilary Jackson at
