Inspiring Science Fund with Wellcome

Since July 2019

Design Science’s Anne Odling-Smee has been working with Wellcome as project monitor for Techniquest (Cardiff) and We the Curious (Bristol), two of Wellcome’s Inspiring Science Fund winners. The projects are co-funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Wellcome.

The role involves consulting on the science centres’ redevelopment and transformation projects. Since July 2019, Anne has been helping to develop a creative response to the challenges of the pandemic on their audience and their income, helping the centres to consider who they are serving, understand the ingredients for success and imagine new ways to develop and deliver their marketing, communications, events and activities during this exceptionally tough time.
