University of Bristol Impact Acceleration Accounts

UKRI has awarded Bristol a total of £4.27 million over three years through its Impact Accelerator Account (IAA) to support critical, early-stage translation and impact of UK research.

The funding will support pilot and proof-of-concept projects and allow the University to provide a pipeline of new technologies, disruptive ideas and creative content that are ripe for development and scale-up. By providing the catalyst that allows projects to grow to the next level, the funding promises to maximise the benefits the University’s world-leading research brings to society and the economy.

How the IAAs work

The impact development team manage the award internally, which gives us the opportunity to work creatively and directly with University of Bristol researchers to accelerate their life changing research and to ensure it makes the important transition into society.

We have set members of our team manage each account. You can take a look at our current IAA opportunities below, which includes information on how to apply to each award – Further information for internal colleagues can be found here.
