Managed by the Social Sciences Division’s Research,Impact and Engagement Team, the £1.1 million ESRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) provides flexible funding options for a wide range of Knowledge Exchange (KE) activities with the intention of enhancing the impact of excellent social science research.
Offering £2,500 to £25,000 for academic-led impact and KE projects, the IAA awards support engagement with all sectors, activities at every stage of development, and researchers at any point in their career. We also encourage collaboration with our O2RB regional partners: Oxford Brookes University, University of Reading, and The Open University.
Support for researchers will also be made available through training, knowledge-sharing with colleagues (both inside and outside our institution), and with the return of our Excellence in Impact Awards, celebrating impact achievements.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any potential applications.
