Institute supports research into physics education

The Institute of Physics is to provide three grants of up to £10,000 each to help cover the costs of preparing and submitting funding applications for research into university-level education in physics.

In an announcement on 26 May, the institute said that there was no clear funding route for research into university-level physics education, and that this seems to have deterred people from applying for such funding.

“There is a vicious circle where none of the research councils has such research as a specific part of its remit, so potential applicants are put off from investing time and money in making a bid,” the statement said. "This in turn means that the research councils may conclude that there is no demand for such research funding."
