BBSRC Impact Acceleration Account Pump-Prime Project Funding - Open Call

The BBSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) pump-prime project funding call is now open. The funding will support short (up to 3 month) projects of up to £15,000 that enable new connections with industry or strengthen existing collaborations. More details and the application forms are provided in the call document here.

There is a very short initial deadline of 10am Friday 22nd June 2018 to enable summer projects, and a second deadline of 10am Friday 22nd September 2018. Up to £50,000 in total is available in each call. We strongly recommend you delay your application to the second date if you do not already have arrangements in place for a summer project. Please note that IAA funding is only available to previous recipients of BBSRC awards. We anticipate further similar calls in 2019 and 2020.

Please contact Kate Parsley from the Bioscience Impact Team (7)65192 if you have any questions.
