School Regional Champions
School Regional Champions (SRCs) support our funded researchers in the UK with public engagement activities for secondary schools and young people aged between 11–19.
A network of SRCs develop and share best practice, tools and activities to aid the support for these researchers.
SRCs receive £800 p.a for public engagement activities and can also apply for additional project funding and travel expenses to attend the annual meeting.
To support our funded researchers in their public engagement around our strategic priorities of food security, industrial biotechnology and bioenergy, and health and wellbeing.
- To enable and encourage researchers to engage with young people aged 11–19
- To promote access to researchers by young people, teachers and education professionals
- To inspire and enthuse young people about bioscience research, its applications and the research funded by BBSRC
- To enable researchers to communicate their research and discuss it with a new audience
- To share activities and tools developed by individual champions
