The Impact and Knowledge Exchange Fellowship, funded by the University of Bath's EPSRC IAA and ESRC IAA fund, is now open for applications.

The Fellowship brings together external and internal experts to deliver you training and development opportunities in research impact, approaches to planning for impact (Theory of Change), delivering impact (including knowledge exchange) and evidencing impact (monitoring and evaluation).

Professor Julie Barnett, Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research, says:

These fellowships are a fantastic opportunity to develop and deepen a range of skills to amplify research impact and to be part of a community of practice with colleagues from different disciplines. The fellowship scheme builds confidence, enhances skills and extends research networks - all key building blocks for developing the impact of our research.

Dr Emma Gibbard, Research Impact Manager, in Research and innovation Services (RIS), says:

We are delighted that the Fellowship is continuing for a third year. We know from the feedback that our Fellows have found it hugely rewarding, not only in terms of helping them to think about their own research in new and innovative ways but also in the new relationships they have made through the Fellowship. A big thank you to the IAAs for enabling us to continue this highly rewarding and successful programme.
