Bright Ideas Fund

Bright ideas will shape the future of our world. That’s why Venator is supporting projects that inspire learning in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths across the North East.

Vote now

Bright Ideas Fund voting open

We’ve received over 50 applications from groups and organisations across the North East that inspire innovation and stimulate learning in science, technology, engineering and maths subjects.

The voting process is now open, so take a look at the list below and vote for up to three of your favourite projects.  The top 40 applications with the most votes will each receive a grant of £250.

The voting period will last for four weeks – closing on 5 May 2019 and all winners and runners up will continue to feature on this website.

If you’ve applied for a grant, you’re welcome to download the toolkit which will give you ideas to promote your own applications with family and friends to help you to increase your votes!
