Internal EPSRC funding opportunity
12 May 2014
EPSRC has awarded The University of Manchester over £3.2M to deliver an Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) following the successful conclusion of its Knowledge Transfer Account (KTA).
Running from September 2012 to September 2015, the £3.2M IAA will aim to ensure that the University fulfills its strategic Knowledge Exchange objectives in the domains covered by EPSRC research.
The University's IAA Operations Board is pleased to announce the 6th call for proposals for funding under the following mechanisms:
- Relationship Incubator Scheme - To develop early stage contact and strategic alignment between business and academics
- Concept Development and Feasibility Study Scheme - To bridge the gap in support for early stage commercialisation of ideas
- Exploitation Secondment Scheme - To increase the exchange of knowledge through mobility of people between the university and user organisations
- Academic Secondment Scheme - Support for Academic secondments between The University of Manchester and businesses and other organisations
As all EPSRC IAA spend must be completed by September 2015, The University’s IAA Operations Board would like to encourage applications for this call, as beyond this deadline the ability to fund projects beyond 6 months is not guaranteed.
The closing date for applications to this 6th call is 2 July 2014, 12 noon.
