Maximising translational groups, centres & facilities

The purpose of this tranche of the IAA is to support York’s groups, centres and facilities which have the capacity, expertise and willingness to offer a service delivering engagement and impact with industry. We are seeking to support those areas of capability that have an explicitly translational focus or potential.


Groups, centres and facilities are invited to submit impact cases for a substantive tranche of IAA funds to be used to support their ability to deliver impact and industry engagement, by broadening the research offer to industry and developing significant new collaborative partnerships whilst strengthening current relationships.

A creative approach is invited in bids for this funding, but we are expecting to see:

  • realistic and effective business engagement strategies
  • clear industry driven research service offering
  • increased capacity to develop research collaborations
  • a programme of industrial engagement activities

It is envisaged that activities should be transformational compared to existing levels of relevant activity.
