09 Sep 2015

Call for proposals

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has awarded the University an extension of £1.7 million to deliver an Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) following the successful conclusion of its £3.2 million IAA programme (2012–15).

Running until March 2017, the IAA will aim to ensure that the University fulfils its strategic Knowledge Exchange objectives in the domains covered by EPSRC research.

The University’s IAA Operations Board is calling for proposals for funding under the following mechanisms:

  • Concept Development and Feasibility Study Scheme
  • Exploitation Secondment Scheme
  • Academic Secondment Scheme

The closing date for applications to this, the tenth call for proposals, is Wednesday, 18 November 2015, at 12 noon.

The Relationship Incubation and Outreach Fund are both available through an open call, with feedback provided within two weeks of submission. Academics are encouraged to work with a Knowledge Exchange Manager to develop the proposal ahead of submission.
