The University will celebrate its research relationships with businesses with a Knowledge Exchange Showcase Dinner at the Bath Spa Hotel on 26 September. This provides an opportunity to showcase some of our research projects and develop further opportunities for collaboration. The Impact Acceleration Account is sponsoring this event, and follows on from the Knowledge Transfer Account (photos are of last year’s KTA sponsored dinner).

We are inviting delegates from around 40 businesses from across the UK with their partner academics from the University of Bath. Companies attending include GKN Aerospace, Jaguar Cars Limited, Ford Motor Company Ltd, Shell International Ltd, AXA Group, Navtech Radar Ltd, TMO Renewables Ltd, PURAC Biochem BV and Atlas Genetics.

The event will be hosted by Professor Kevin Edge, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Jane Millar, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research), Dr Jon Hunt, IAA Project Director, and Dr Denise Cooke, IAA Project Manager. Awards will be made to recognise successful knowledge exchange projects.

The University's EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account runs from 1 October 2012 to 30 September 2015. This £1.4m grant is enabling us to encourage our EPSRC award-holders to engage in Pathways to Impact, working towards better dissemination and use of our research and outcomes for external organisations.

Funding is available for match-funded Partnership Development Awards (up to £300K) and also smaller Feasibility Awards (up to £5K).

The ne07940-0282 resizedxt deadline for expressions of interest is noon on Friday 6 September 2013.
