Members from the project team and the Wellcome Trust considered all the applications carefully to select 15 new centres to be equipped and trained to deliver either the Bacterial Evolution workshop for 14-15 year old students, or A Question of Taste for post-16 students. You can see which organisations will be taking part in the project and will be delivering the workshops in late 2011 on the Participating Organisations page.

The panel were extremely impressed with the strength of all the applications recieved, with a broad national coverage. The panel selected organisations based on a set of pre-agreed criteria. Successful organisations were notified on 15 July 2011.
