Impact Acceleration Account

Following on from the success of the University of Surrey's EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) from 2012 to 2017, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has awarded funding to support another 3 year programme. 

The previous programmes ran for four and a half years from October 2012 until March 2017, supporting 78 projects across 58 different strands of activity.

“The objective of the IAA has been to provide short-term pump priming support to bridge the funding gap between research and potential commercialisation, often referred to as the ‘valley of death’. Funding from the IAA has been a key element in exploiting research, with many of the projects going on to secure additional funding to support the activity along the road to commercialisation”.

Prof Michael Kearney – Provost and Executive Vice-President; Principal Investigator

The University has recently produced a second edition of the review of IAA supported work, 'Impacting Lives’, featuring additional case studies of projects funded between October 2015 and March 2017. This is currently available in print from the IAA  The previous review, 2012-2015 is available electronically - you can download a copy, or view an online version
