We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAA)

Front cover of the STFC Impact Acceleration Account report, 2021 edition

STFC’s Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) has been developed to provide flexible funding directly to the research organisation’s Knowledge Exchange (KE) / Technology Transfer (TT) Office (or equivalent) to support STFC-funded academics to take their ideas towards commercialisation, through activities not currently supported by an STFC funding programme.

Due to funding restrictions, IAA funding is only available to the top 30 institutions, determined by combined total STFC grant money being awarded over the past 5 financial years. Eligible institutions will be contacted directly and invited to apply.

For any queries over eligibility or for more details about the IAA, please contact the assistant programme manager Ed Mansfield
