BBSRC Impact Acceleration Account 2015-16

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) awarded the University of Bristol a £100,000 BBSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) from July 2015 to July 2016.

The Research Councils define Impact as the demonstrable contribution that excellent research makes to society and the economy.  The objective of our BBSRC IAA was to increase, advance and accelerate the achievement of impact from BBSRC investments in excellent bioscience research and capability.


BBSRC IAA Impact Project funding has now been fully allocated
