Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAA)

The University holds several research council Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAA).

BBSRC

The College of MVLS manages a BBSRC-funded Impact Acceleration Account. The fund aims to increase, advance and accelerate the achievement of impact from BBSRC investments. For enquiries, please email Chris Mort in the first instance.

EPSRC

The College of Science and Engineering manages the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account. This fund supports a range of Knowledge Exchange (KE) interventions with a focus on small-scale investments that pump-prime wider KE activities and impact generation. The EPSRC IAA typically provides two core funding streams to build on previous EPSRC-funded projects, proof-of-concept, and collaborative development.

ESRC

The ESRC-funded IAA supports Knowledge Exchange activity and impact generation in research areas falling within the ESRC portfolio. It is expected that applications will involve an external partner from the public, private or third sector, and an assessment of potential impact generation is a critical part of the application review process. Calls are made three times a year. There is also a small grants fund.

Please contact the College of Social Science Research Office for information and enquiries on timings and applications (SocSci-ESRC-IAA@glasgow.ac.uk) or to talk through your ideas for pre-application advice and guidance contact Bill White or Kyle Taggart.

STFC

The College of Science and Engineering manages the STFC Impact Acceleration Account. This fund supports a range of Knowledge Exchange (KE) interventions with a focus on small-scale investments that pump-prime wider KE activities and impact generation.
