EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA)
The EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) is a smaller, follow-on grant from the Knowledge Transfer Account (KTA). The KTA finished on 30 September 2012 and the IAA started on 1 October 2012 and runs for three years.
There are some changes from the KTA, as the IAA will be funding projects which relate to an EPSRC grant, either during or within one year of completion, to stimulate pathways to impact and collaborative research & development projects. Non-EPSRC award-holders can apply in collaboration with an EPSRC award-holder.
The two mechanisms in the IAA are Partnership Development Awards and Feasibility Awards, the former being co-funded with business/3rd parties and the latter being available to smaller projects which are taking the first steps towards impact, and travel awards.
Further information is available to staff:
- Impact Acceleration Account Call for Proposals
- Expression of Interest for Feasibility Awards
- Expression of Interest for Partnership Development Award
Contact points and further details of the calls can be found in the calls for proposal documents above.
The next deadline for Feasibility Award Expression of Interest applications will be: Tuesday 7 January 2014, 12 Noon.
See the IAA Briefing Session slides for further information.
