New call from EPSRC Impact Acceleration account – 8th September deadline

The Impact Acceleration Award (IAA) provides funding to take EPSRC supported research one step further towards exploitation by Industry. 

Within Cambridge University, funding is available for three schemes:

Knowledge Transfer Fellowships and Postgraduate Placements – enabling researchers to spend time in companies to pass on the knowledge they have developed, and to bring industry knowledge into the University.

Follow on Fund Projects – addressing specific technical barriers to commercialisation identified during the research stage

Partnership Development Awards – funding a small research project that could lead to a major collaboration with industrial partners.

The final round of IAA funding will soon be open for applications. Expressions of Interest should be submitted to the Research Strategy Office by 8 September with a final submission date of 29th September 2014.  Note that some Departments ask to review your proposal before submission to the RSO.

In Engineering please contact Chris Pearson ( or Alexandra Bolton (, who will be happy to provide support and advice.

Funding is also available for technology roadmapping and industry workshops, bringing together researchers and industry to develop collaborative research proposals.
