We are offering seed funding of up to £2,000 to local residents and community groups who wish to explore and share the wonder of science with their communities.

Societal engagement at Imperial is for all members of staff and you can sign up to our exciting masterclasses now! They are a low-commitment, easy way to get familiar with engagement and kickstart your engagement activities.
Engagement activities have a whole range of benefits including:
- Gaining new perspectives
- Getting the public excited about STEM and your work
- Raising your professional profile
- Opening up new funding opportunities
The core masterclasses introduce you to what public engagement is, what it can offer you and your research and provide some pointers to start planning your own activities. There are four further masterclasses to build on your knowledge and skills in areas such as engagement with controversial issues and engagement as a pathway to research impact.
All masterclasses are just a couple of hours long. Find out more and sign up.
