Applications of £100-£1000 are welcomed from all staff and postgraduate students.

Activities could include demonstrations or exhibitions somewhere your research might not normally reach (a school, museum, the high street…); opportunities for public participation in research (e.g. sports performance analysis with local athletes, community archaeological excavation, children’s language studies); workshops that share findings from your research or instil new skills; a focus group guiding and shaping research and more. Be as creative as you like! For inspiration take a look at previous successful grant projects.
