We’ve been awarded £1.25 million from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to develop impact from ESRC-funded research.
The funding, which comes from The Impact Acceleration Account (IAA), supports a wide range of social, economic and behavioural science impact activities to translate research into real impacts. Thirty-two research organisations across the UK will benefit from the support, totalling £40 million, and will run from 1 April 2023 until 31 March 2028.
Record of success
IAAs have been vital in turning the bright ideas of our researchers into reality. Previous funding has supported 150 impact projects and initiatives, alongside capacity-building training and events. We have also received additional funding to accelerate business collaboration, support local policy engagement and encourage the development of social science research commercialisation.
Building on the success of previous programmes, we are delivering a range of IAAs focusing on supporting organisations of all shapes and sizes with their research and development. Previous projects include:
