EPSRC IAA 2017 - 2020

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has awarded the University of Glasgow a £1.69m Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) to increase the global impact of the University through greater levels of external engagement and entrepreneurship.

The Impact Acceleration Account supports a range of interventions with a focus on investments that pump-prime wider KE activities and impact generation. The IAA aims to deliver this by focusing on 4 core objectives:

  • Enterprise and entrepreneurship
  • Partnership development
  • Researcher mobility
  • Capacity building and culture change

The EPSRC IAA provides funding to build on previous EPSRC-funded research projects. Examples of eligible activities include: prototyping, collaborative development, enterprise/industry secondments, and travel to meet with collaborators or attend industry events. The IAA Management Group will announce activities that will support networking and relationship building and involve relevant staff. There will also be directed calls throughout the IAA period.  

If you would like to apply for EPSRC IAA funds, please discuss your idea with a Business Development, Research Development, KE or Impact Manager in your College.
