NERC Summer of Science call

NERC - the Natural Environment Research Council - is inviting applications from researchers to deliver public engagement activities as part of the 'NERC Summer of Science' taking place during the summer of 2015.

To mark its 50th anniversary in 2015, NERC will be supporting a series of events and activities to engage the public with its research. NERC's Summer of Science will take place across the UK, enabling the public to encounter NERC research in a range of venues during the summer months of 2015. Funds are being made available to support, develop and deliver this.

Eligibility and conditions

To be eligible to apply for this funding, you must currently have funding from NERC or have received NERC funding within the past five years. The activity must be based upon research that NERC is currently or has previously funded.

Up to £7,500 is available per activity. NERC are keen to support a range of different activities and anticipate many applications will seek less than this. The award may be used as part-funding for larger projects involving other funders, although the activity will need to take place during 2015.


Applications should be submitted on the Summer of Science application form before the deadline of 17:00 on 26 January 2015.
