Public Engagement Spark Awards

Spark want to..

  • Encourage and support novel, high-quality public engagement activities that highlight STFC’s science and technology
  • Introduce STFC science and technology to new audiences
  • Highlight the achievements of STFC science and technology, demonstrating the excitement of research and the value of STEM to the UK

Expectations of our spark award holders…

  • Delivering high-quality public engagement activities during the lifetime of the award
  • Championing STFC science and technology, including the impact of science and technology on society
  • Interacting with STFC’s public engagement and communication teams, including participation in STFC networks, events, and advisory structures when requested

Almost anyone can apply for a Spark Award, including grant funded researchers, STFC scientists and engineers, facility users, schools, museums, science communicators, and amateur astronomy groups.

The Principal Applicant must be eligible to apply on behalf of the organisation that would hold the award.

Every application must include a researcher in an STFC-funded area of science or technology. While these researchers often play an active role in delivering the engagement activities, this is not mandatory – they may act as an advisor on the scientific content.
