Nottingham Impact Accelerator

Internal funding to support translational research and knowledge exchange.

The University administers a number of internal funding streams to support translation of research outputs and the transfer and exchange of knowledge between the University and the wider economy. Support mechanisms include secondments to industry and proof of concept funding to further develop new ideas arising from research carried out at the University and awards range from travel grants of up to £3,000 to translational research awards up to £75,000.

The different funding streams under the accelerator are listed below and are administered through regular calls for proposals. Staff login details are required to access the below information.



Funding is also available outside of calls and colleagues are strongly encouraged to contact the Accelerator Programme Manager David Southall to discuss proposals at any time or to complete a generic Nottingham Impact Accelerator (NIA) Expression of Interest proforma.
