The ESRC Impact Acceleration Account (2) is now open for applications!
The IAA 2 is organised as a stage-gated programme. Within this programme there are four Stages at which awards are offered, providing for knowledge exchange activities at different levels of development.
Projects supported by the IAA might start at a small scale, or at a very early point, for example, funding for initial conversations with partners. Award Stages 1-4 will support the project as it grows, through piloting to carrying out a fully developed impact project (if agreed outcomes are well met and appropriate continuation activity is planned, as judged by the IAA Review Panel). However, projects may come to the fund at any point in their development and enter the programme at any Stage.
Application deadline 18 May

Business Engagement Seed Fund
Small amounts of funding (up to £15,000) are available to support colleagues to build mutually beneficial partnerships. These funds could be used to bring colleagues together with external stakeholders (such as businesses, industry bodies, and not-for-profit organisations) in meaningful and productive two-way discussions, and to scope out big sector specific challenges that, if addressed, would raise productivity and economic growth through innovation.
This scheme will have a continuous open call for applications under £3,000. The deadline for applications over £3,000 will be confirmed in autumn 2019. For details please contact a member of the Business Engagement and Partnerships team, whose details are below.
This funding is part of the Social Science and Humanities Divisions allocation of Higher Education Innovation Funding (HEIF).
