Projects must:

  • develop an existing activity either by exploring ways to make it sustainable or by scaling it up in a cost-effective manner;
  • learn from a successful engagement activity and replicate it with a new audience.

Individuals and commercial and non-profit organisations may apply. Applicants may be working in in the arts, culture, entertainment media, heritage, leisure, education, research, informal learning, social enterprise, non-profit and community sectors, or other fields.

All applications must include a subject expert in science or health-related discipline.
