Over the next three years the fellows will explore the topics of comic creation, science journalism, child nutrition, inclusion and equity in science.

Our Engagement Fellowships scheme has been running for seven years. It supports leaders across a wide range of disciplines who are looking to develop their practice.

Previous fellows have used their fellowships to explore new ways of thinking about science and its wider cultural contexts. Their projects have explored poetry, citizen science, art, TV presenting and writing, consciousness, disability and inclusive spaces for public discussion.
