Telling Tales of Engagement Competition 2017

The RCUK Digital Economy (DE) Theme is running a competition designed to help capture and promote the impact that your Research Council funded digital economy research is having. Three prizes of £10,000 are available to support researchers to further tell the story of research impact in an interesting and engaging way to a wider audience.

This year, the Telling Tales of Engagement (TTE) 2017 competition has two aims. We want you to:

  1. tell stories that describe how your pathway to impact genuinely unfolded, to help the wider research community and public understand how impact really occurs and what benefits have been (or are expected to be) delivered from your Research Council funded research.
  2. explain how you will use the prize, to engage the public with your research; to show how the benefits of your research help make a contribution to various challenges and to help address RCUK's equality, diversity and inclusion agenda.

To apply, please complete the online form on this page, addressing the questions in the Call Scope, by 12:00 noon on Wednesday 06 December 2017.
