Description

What could you or your organisation do with £100,000? 

To mark the Royal Astronomical Society's 200th anniversary the RAS has £1 million pounds to give away to allow the RAS to work in partnership with charities and organisations that we have never worked with before (so don't worry if your organisation doesn't traditionally offer STEM opportunities) to develop new and innovative ideas that will help engage a new audience with astronomy or geophysics.

Applications from the Republic of Ireland are welcome for this grant, a community meeting will also be held in Dublin in November if you are unable to attend this meeting. 

Want to know more about how you could apply? Want to know more about the scheme and meet some of the scientists that you could get to work with? Pop along to our community meeting to find out all the answers to your questions! 



The agenda for the afternoon will be:

1pm – 1.30pm:  Arrivals, welcome drinks and light lunch.

1.30pm:  Welcome and Introduction to the RAS, RAS 200 and Sky & Earth project, aims and evaluation criteria and timetable.

1.45pm – 2pm:  Who’s Here? Quick overview of attendees & associations.

2pm – 2:20pm:  Two-minute pitches – a chance to tell the whole meeting about your idea.

2:20pm – 3pm:  Round-table discussions to discuss potential proposals.

3pm – 3.45pm:  Feedback from groups.
