The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has awarded The University of Manchester over £860k to deliver the Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) until 31 March 2018. The IAA will be used to fund knowledge exchange activities to accelerate the impact of research in the social sciences, across the University.

The second call is now open with a deadline for proposals of noon on 20 March 2015. Details of all IAA calls can be found here. Please contact esrciaa@manchester.ac.uk if you have any questions.  

The first call attracted a high level of interest and seven projects were funded to a value of £124k, representing partnerships with a range of organisations who contributed a total of £33k directly and £113k in kind.
