NERC has awarded the University £200k to deliver a Pilot Impact Acceleration Account (IAA), building on the successful delivery of its Knowledge Exchange activities and support from other Research Councils
Running until 31 March 2015, the £200k IAA will aim to ensure that the University fulfils its strategic Knowledge Exchange objectives in the domains covered by NERC research.
The IAA Operations Board is pleased to announce the third and final call under this IAA and would like to encourage applications for funding under the following schemes:
- Relationship Incubator – 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
- Case Study Development – to develop print and video case studies to showcase impact arising from NERC funded research
Support is available for the development of funding applications and case studies. The closing date for applications to this final call is 24 September 2014, 12 noon.
