Research Enrichment – Public Engagement

This funding supports Wellcome grantholders who want to use public insights to develop their research. Engagement helps to build the public's trust in research, and ensure research is valued within society.

We’re changing our funding schemes

The way we fund research is changing to support our new strategy. A simplified set of funding schemes will be open for applications in summer 2021.

We are reviewing our funding approach for this scheme and will provide updates as our strategy develops.
