Accelerating Business Collaboration

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) made funding available to build the capacity and capability of social science doctoral students and early career researchers to engage with business.

This 'Accelerating Business Collaboration' (ABC) funding was delivered via the Oxford ESRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) and the Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership (GUDTP).

ABC-funded activities were open to all social science PhD and ECR researchers from the five partner institutions: Brunel University London, Oxford Brookes University, The Open University, University of Oxford and University of Reading.
