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 £6 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.
