After another tough year and the end of mass COVID-19 testing, we're looking forward to celebrating Biomedical Science Day 2022 and hope to finally see some face to face (or mask to mask) activities taking place. 

If you are planning to organise events for Biomedical Science Day, consider applying for the Biomedical Science Day Activity Fund. The fund will provide grants of up to £500 for IBMS members to develop their biomedical science related activities and events.

Activities should aim to raise public awareness of biomedical science and demonstrate the value of the profession and its role in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infections and disease.

The grants may be used to support a range of activities and resources for experiments, exhibition space at careers events, marketing and communications materials, incentives and giveaways.

We recognise that not all members are able to participate on the day and therefore grants may be used for activities up to 30th September 2022.

 

How to apply

So that we can release the funds in time for successful applications, please complete our online application form by Friday 20th May.

Please note: by providing the IBMS with the information requested you are consenting to its use as indicated in the IBMS Privacy Notice.

 

After the deadline

Submissions will be reviewed and all successful applicants will be notified by email by Tuesday 24th May. Earlier applications may be processed prior to this date. 

Successful applicants must show that their activity:

  • Is realistic, planned and has a well thought out budget
  • Applies a creative and innovative approach
  • Raises awareness of biomedical science to a wider audience
Please note

The funds may be used to pay for exhibition space, marketing and communications materials, and refreshments for event/activity participants, incentives and give-aways. They should not be used to purchase items of equipment, unless approved in advance by the IBMS.

Funds of up to £500 per applicant will be transferred to the successful members who will have to provide receipts of all purchases. 

If successful, applicants will be required to provide pictures of their event and write up their activities afterwards to demonstrate how the funds were used, which will be used for promotional purposes.
