Call for Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) funding


May 14th, 2021

The university has opened a call for Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) funding from the BBSRC IAA.

The IAA will fund translational research projects, knowledge exchange (KE) and development of KE capabilities to further the following objectives:

  • Strengthening the exchange of knowledge through culture and capability development, including through the development of skills for KE activity
  • Supporting early-stage knowledge exchange and commercialisation projects to the point where they would be supported by other funding
  • Supporting new, innovative and imaginative approaches to KE and Impact, including processes that enable “fast failure” and appropriate learning
  • Supporting activities that enable impact to be achieved in an effective and timely manner, including secondments and people exchange.
  • Strengthening user engagement

Applicants/projects should currently/previously have been supported by the BBSRC.

Full details are on the Research Information System, with brief details and the application form on the Nottingham Impact Accelerator and BBSRC IAA workspaces.

There will be no Expressions of Interest for this call. The Call is open now and full applications are welcome on a rolling basis.

If you have any questions please contact Dr Iain Bower at iain.bower@nottingham.ac.uk.
