Introduction to the STFC IAA

STFC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) Fund provides support for activities that will accelerate impact from University of Oxford research that falls within the STFC remit, but the IAA panel also wants to see projects with synergies between STFC and EPSRC science portfolios.

IAA funding will support (but is not limited to):

  • Innovation and commercialisation proof-of concept projects
  • Industry / stakeholder engagement and community building workshops
  • Industry / stakeholder secondments

This funding is for knowledge exchange related work for the benefit of researchers working in one or more of the STFC core science remit areas.

Applicants are not required to hold a current or past STFC grant to apply for STFC IAA support.

STFC IAA funds will not support existing programmes or blue-skies research or public engagement.

The University of Oxford’s STFC IAA is accepting applications to support activities involving:

  1. Impact Development or Technology Development
  2. Partnerships or Knowledge Exchange (KE)
  3. Doctoral Impact (New Scheme)

Details of these schemes are on the Funding Schemes tab.
