Engineering Biology in Cambridge


The British Academy is delighted to announce the launch of a pilot award scheme, SHAPE Involve and Engage, which will fund innovative public engagement projects, delivered in partnership with a gallery, library, archive or museum.

We are searching for creative academics who want to experiment with their engagement work and explore ambitious new ways to share their research with a public audience.

The call offers an exciting opportunity build new connections with cultural partners and trial creative ideas for engaging the public with research from across our disciplines, from history to psychology, from classics to geography.

Small awards of up to £8,000 will be made to researchers across the UK in the pilot year. Applications are welcomed from any discipline within the humanities and social sciences, and the scheme is open to UK-based researchers at any stage of career.

Please do share the scheme with colleagues and get in touch with us if you have any questions via:
