King's Civic Challenge 2021/22
Eight projects won funding in the third year of the King's Civic Challenge: each community partner received £5,000 alongside a package of evaluation and support. For the first time, however, project support was provided to all participating partners - not just the winners.
Four awards were given out to align with each of the Civic Challenge focus areas, with three additional prizes awarded to projects for art, science and health, multiple perspectives, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
One further project was developed exclusively by a team of researchers from the Centre for Medical Engineering at King’s and the MITHRAS programme, alongside community partners Coin Street Centre Trust and the Colombo Centre. This project received direct fundfing from the MITHRAS programme itself.
In this year, the Civic Challenge Final took place in hybrid for the first time at Science Gallery London. For the first time in three years, a reception event was held after the final.
