About the IAA

Since the inception of the Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) in October 2012, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has awarded the University of Bath nearly £5 million and leveraged funds of more than £10 million, to support knowledge exchange and impact activities across our institution. IAA funds help to speed up the contribution that research makes towards innovation across industry, business and the public sector.

We are awaiting confirmation of UKRI IAA funding from April 2022 before announcing the next Open Call application process and requirements. Please get in touch with Alice Hovanessian to register your interest and discuss your project idea. Email:
