Do you have an imaginative idea that could help engineers to communicate their expertise and passion for engineering to a wider audience? You could be an engineer interested in running your own project, or a science or engineering public engagement professional keen to explore ways to provide public engagement training and opportunities. If so, the Royal Academy of Engineering want to hear from you.

Ingenious is an award scheme for projects that engage the public with engineers and engineering. Ingenious projects provide opportunities for engineers to take part in public engagement activities, to gain skills in communication and to bring engineering to the very centre of society.

The awards prioritise projects that reach diverse and underrepresented audiences including communities in the top 25% most deprived neighbourhoods in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and that engage with engineers and publics of different genders, ages and ethnic backgrounds.

Apply now for funding for between £3,000 and £30,000.
