Identify and engage your target audience for success in the Spark Awards
- The project must be within the STFC’s remit and feature at least one scientist in that area.
- Identify your audience and concentrate on inspiring them with your activities.
- Read up on the STFC’s Wonder Initiative and consider whether your project could contribute.
- Consider how your project could go beyond your specific audience to a broader one.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Spark Awards run twice a year and aim to support public engagement projects in the council’s remit over a period of up to three years. While astronomy is a frequent subject of focus (as this Funding Insight profile of a previous winning bid demonstrates), the STFC does welcome bids from across its remit (as this profile shows).
