Funding area: Prizes & Medals
Through encouraging those who engage the public with research, the RSE is supporting the advancement of public discussion on significant matters. Rewarding those who are exemplary at communicating and facilitating this engagement, is an important step in enabling cultural change amongst research organizations, which is necessary to ensure that the public receives the greatest benefit from Scotland’s pioneering research and innovation.
The Royal Society of Edinburgh launched the RSE Prizes for Public Engagement in 2011, with the aim of recognising and rewarding the advancement of high-quality public engagement with research. In 2011 and 2012, the prizes were supported by Edinburgh Beltane. The prizes are now supported by the James Weir Foundation.
The deadline for nominations for the 2018 RSE Prizes for Public Engagement is likely be in autumn 2017.
