Our work

Wellcome Global Monitor

The Wellcome Global Monitor is the world’s largest study into how people around the world think and feel about science and major health challenges.

How we engage the public

The people, projects and places we support include everyone from small community groups and charities to Nobel Prize winners and national galleries.

Public engagement support for researchers

Sharing your ideas with the public and getting new perspectives can enhance your research. We offer public engagement funding, advice and training opportunities for all Wellcome-funded researchers.
