A crucial part of the Medical Research Council’s (MRC) mission is to promote dialogue about medical research with the public who fund it. We encourage MRC-funded scientists to engage the public in their research.
The MRC public engagement seed funding aims to support MRC-funded scientists in piloting new activities or to take advantage of unexpected engagement opportunities. Applications are typically for between a few hundred and £5,000, with a maximum limit of £10,000. To apply, please complete the MRC public engagement seed funding application form.
You can also apply for the Medical Research Foundation’s Changing policy and practice award.
