Rebecca Launchbury

ESRC Impact Acceleration Account Manager 

I am responsible for co-ordinating a range of research impact and Knowledge Exchange (KE) initiatives across the Social Sciences Division, funded through the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) and HEIF (Higher Education Innovation Fund). I am the primary point of contact for advice on IAA funding proposals. I manage all aspects of the application and review process, plus award set up, and oversee reporting to the ESRC. I work collaboratively with our regional partners in the IAA via the O2RB partnership. I also help to run the Impact Conference, O2RB Excellence in Impact Awards, and a programme of training workshops and seminars to support academics develop their impact and KE activities.
