Today, the British Science Association (BSA) has announced that it will be launching a new grants scheme in January 2021 aimed at building connections between communities and researchers.
The Ideas Fund has been developed by the British Science Association, in partnership with Wellcome, and will support communities in tackling issues that matter to them by connecting them with researchers. The Fund will focus on projects that relate to mental wellbeing during 2021-23 and will provide funding and support for communities to get their ideas off the ground.
Martha is providing consultancy support for the BSA’s communications team and Head of Grants ahead of the Fund’s launch, as part of a multi-agency project team.
