Enabling our social science community to respond to impact opportunities in flexible, responsive and creative ways
Introducing the ESRC IAA at Queen's
The ESRC IAA at Queen's helps to maximise the societal and economic impact of social science research by facilitating collaboration and knowledge sharing with external partners. The scheme supports the translation of research findings into practical applications, policy recommendations and commercial opportunities.

UKRI Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAAs) are strategic awards that offer funding to research organisations for a wide range of impact-driven activities. These awards allow research organisations to respond flexibly, responsively, and creatively to various opportunities for creating impact. There are 32 organisations across the UK with ESRC IAAs.More on how ESRC supports collaboration
