Research Enrichment – Public Engagement
This funding, previously known as the Provision for Public Engagement, helps Wellcome grantholders engage the public with their research.
Public engagement activities – where researchers share their ideas with the public and in return get new perspectives on their research – can inspire learning, enhance research and help to improve health.
