The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has awarded the University of Manchester over £860k to deliver the Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) until 2018. The IAA will be used to fund knowledge exchange activities to accelerate the impact of research in the social sciences, across the University.
We would like to invite you to the launch of the ESRC IAA which will take place on Thursday 9 October 11:00 – 13:30. The launch will provide an opportunity to:
- Hear from the ESRC and the plans for the IAA

- Discuss potential projects and find out details of the IAA funding calls
- Speak to the Knowledge Exchange team about follow-on funding opportunities such as Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs)
