ESRC Impact Acceleration Account

We are delighted to announce that the University of Oxford has been awarded a second round of funding through the ERSC Impact Acceleration Account, totalling £1.1 million. This renewed funding will support knowledge exchange and impact activities undertaken by social science researchers across the institution from now until March 2023.

In November we will announce the first call for our competitive funding schemes (ranging from £2,500 to £25,000) for academic-led impact and knowledge exchange projects, through which the majority of funding will be channelled. These awards will support engagement with all sectors, activities at every stage of development, and researchers at any point in their career.

The Oxford IAA will once again be managed by the Social Sciences Division, with Prof. Mark Pollard as Associate Head (Research) acting as Academic Lead and Chair of the IAA. Support to researchers will also be made available through training, knowledge-sharing with colleagues (both inside and outside our institution), and with the return of our Impact Awards, celebrating great impact achievements.

Come back soon to find out the latest opportunities through ESRC IAA.

Meanwhile, you can contact Lorna Hards, ESRC IAA Manager, for the latest information on
