National Environment Research Council (NERC) - COVID-19 public engagement grant

Available: CLOSED

Region: UK

Funding projects costing up to £10,000 each with a total budget of £50,000

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) is inviting proposals for public engagement with environmental science which understand, address or mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Social distancing and the closure of many public institutions present major challenges to engagement, to research and to society.

Public engagement with environmental science can respond to these in a positive way.

This funding aims to help researchers to find different and better methods of engagement that they would not otherwise be able to implement.

It could also help researchers to find alternative ways to gather data that would otherwise be collected on fieldwork which can no longer go ahead.
