Impact Project Fund
The University of Reading was awarded an Impact Accelerator Account (IAA) funded by the AHRC, which aims to expand the impact of its research in the Arts and Humanities, in relation to both local contexts and national and international imperatives.
An important element of Reading’s IAA is the Impact Project Fund. The objective of the fund is to invest in early stages of work in the impact pipeline, to facilitate understanding of the challenges groups are facing, and investigate how the University of Reading’s research can help to address those. It is designed to allow us to rapidly respond to emerging needs and new opportunities to develop impact. Successful applications to the Fund will enable researchers to enhance the impact of their research, to undertake impact and engagement activities, and develop partnerships with external stakeholders.
Applications to the Fund are invited from anyone working in the AHRC remit. Applications are welcomed for a range of amounts but applications for more than £6000 will not normally be funded.
Further information and the application form can be found here, and a PDF format of the application form which can be used to prepare in advance is here. The form must be submitted by 17:00 on 20 November 2023.
