Harmonised Impact Acceleration Account (IAA)

For the first time, UKRI has introduced new IAA funding to strengthen engagement and develop strategic partnerships across academic disciplines.

Harmonised IAA Call 2022

 

The new funding is available for impact or translational projects of £20k to £60k, for up to 12 months, that include at least two researchers representing separate council remits (BBSRC, EPSRC, MRC/ Wellcome Trust iTPA).     

Projects should address a clearly identified unmet societal need, challenge or opportunity by combining research from the listed council remits. Applicants must justify why it is necessary to collaborate across research council remits and demonstrate that the proposal brings together the capabilities, expertise, and resources necessary to meet project aims.

Applicants can still apply for individual BBSRC, EPSRC, MRC and Wellcome Trust iTPA funding, and existing recipients can still apply for this additional funding for a different collaborative project.

Early Career Researchers (PDRA level and above) are eligible to apply.
