The Impact Funding Team, in Research and Innovation Services (R&IS), manage the University of Southampton’s UKRI Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAAs). They work with colleagues across the University to support research and commercialisation strategies, in order to maximise and promote the impact of the University’ research.

The ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) define Impact as “the demonstrable contribution that excellent research makes to society and the economy’’ and the Festival of Social Science 2019 will offer a fascinating insight into some of the University’s leading social science research and how it influences social, economic and political lives - both now and in the future!
