Community engagement with research and innovation given a boost with new grants awarded to 12 UK museums and science centres
Funding from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has been awarded to twelve outstanding projects by UK museums and science centres. The grants, totalling £827,945, have been made available as part of the Mindsets + Missions programme being delivered by the Museums Association in partnership with the Association for Science and Discovery Centres and The Liminal Space.
Mindsets + Missions is a pilot learning and grants programme designed to support museums, science centres and vibrant individuals from the sectors to realise new and creative approaches to serving their communities through inclusive research-related projects.
"We are delighted to be supporting museums and science centres to push the boundaries and possibilities of equitable and inclusive participation in UK research and innovation. ASDC recognises the value of our sector for challenging the inequalities of power, access and opportunity in STEM, and we are eager to share all the incredible learning and inspirational practice that emerges from Mindsets + Missions."
