King’s College London has been awarded a one-year extension to its Impact Acceleration Account worth £390,000 by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). This extended award allows us to continue to provide the support for researchers to transfer ideas and technologies developed from previous EPSRC-funded grants out into society.
This funding will be used to support a key internal funding scheme, the Advancing Impact Award, of up to £45,000 per project.
How are organisations outside King’s involved?
King’s was awarded its first EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account in 2015, and since then researchers have been working closely with business, clinical, and end-user partner organisations, funded by the internal award schemes.
Projects are as diverse as artificial intelligence (Department of Informatics with Transport for London), fluorescence instrumentation and design (Dental Institute with clinical partners and the Design Council), and mathematical techniques in medicine (Departments of Primary Care & Population Health Sciences and Mathematics with GlaxoSmithKline).
King’s College London is always open to striking new partnerships, as well as strengthening existing ones. The IAA is one way that successful project collaboration in the areas of science, mathematics and engineering can be supported.
