Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) 2015-17

The EPSRC initially awarded £1.04m of Impact Acceleration Account funding to The University of St Andrews (2012-15) to promote a step change in the delivery of knowledge exchange.  In October 2015 and in June 2016 EPSRC awarded the University further IAA funding for an additional 18 months to end March 2017.  

In 2015 the Schools of Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy, Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics were allocated a proportion of the total IAA funding based on the size of their current EPSRC portfolio. Should the university be awarded further EPSRC IAA funding, this will be communicated to relevant schools.

Businesses and researchers can learn about previous and current IAA projects on the IAA Showcase section of this site or go to the IAA Showcase website to register for the free event in March. 

Business engagement video case studies can also be viewed on the business engagement section of this site.
