The University of York has been awarded an ESRC Impact Acceleration Account (ESRC IAA) which will support a four-year programme of activities with external partners.
The York ESRC IAA will enable our social science research to have impacts which will benefit on society and the economy, through engaging and working with our partners and external organisations.
We will achieve these aims through three primary funding calls:
- The York Laboratory – encouraging impact locally and regionally.
- Co-production – engaging stakeholders and users with projects from the start, working towards a solution to a known problem.
We will also coordinate a series of workshop and training sessions focusing on policy and showcasing York research to Whitehall and other potential external partners, and we will enhance the current training provision in impact at the University.
Research impact is, in general, the effect research has beyond academia. The York Research Impact Statement describes research impact as "...when the knowledge generated by our research contributes to, benefits and influences society, culture, our environment and the economy".
We advise potential applicants for ESRC IAA funding to look at the University's Research Impact pages. These can help you identify, plan and evaluate impact and identify additional sources of support.
