We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Public Engagement Legacy Awards

The 2022 Legacy call is open from 19 November 2021 until 16:00 on 3 February 2022. For the updated guidance please go to the funding opportunity page on the UKRI website.

Legacy Awards allow the holders of previous Public Engagement Awards to apply for funding to continue their programmes, and evolve those programmes based on learning and evaluation. As part of this Legacy Award, we expect you to:

  • deliver high quality public engagement activities during the lifetime of the award
  • raise the profile and standards of public engagement within your host organisation or professional community, including sharing best practice and developing new talent
  • champion STFC science and technology, including the impact of science and technology on society 
  • regularly interact with STFC’s public engagement and communication teams, including participation in STFC networks, events and advisory structures when requested 
  • work with partners to secure the future of your engagement programme.

We encourage Legacy Award applications that include work with the Wonder target audience or those considered to have low science capital.
