AHRC Impact Acceleration Account

The University of Birmingham's AHRC Impact Acceleration Account supports impact and knowledge exchange activities across all Arts and Humanities disciplines. 

The AHRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) will run from 2022 until 31 March 2025 and is designed to  strengthen and widen user engagement with the University's arts and humanities research, support innovative and experimental knowledge exchange, and create opportunities for academics looking to expand their impact and engagement activity.
