EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account

EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account

The Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) is a mechanism to bridge the funding gap between research and impact, complementing our overall knowledge exchange strategy and enabling us to pursue a range of activities to realise our corporate ethos of “excellence with a purpose”.

Aims and Objectives

The aims are to:

  • Provide diverse opportunities for a wider range of colleagues
  • Improve the outcomes of projects beyond IAA funding

To achieve these aims the following objectives have been identified:

  • Improve visibility of funding opportunities and IAA outcomes
  • Increase the diversity of applicants
  • Create more opportunities for ECRs
  • Improve capture of outcomes and sustainability
  • Strengthen links to other University initiatives

How is it managed?

The IAA provides support to all of our EPSRC-supported activities across all three Faculties.  There is a dedicated IAA manager who works with other RCUK IAA managers, Faculty Impact Officers, Business Development Managers and Strategic Relationship Account Managers. An ongoing collaboration with Durham Univeristy is also a key element of our IAA activity.
