Deadline: Monday 22nd October 2018. Amount of funding: Up to £20,000 (must complete all spend before 31 July 2019).

Applications that meet the eligibility criteria of the University’s Impact Acceleration Accounts (the EPSRC IAA, the ESRC IAA, or the BBSRC IAA), should be progressed to those IAA funds in the first instance.
