ESRC IAA Panel

Whilst the IAA is a competitive process, it is also a tool for self-development

Our review panel is a vital component of the ESRC IAA. They advise on strategy, direction and mechanisms of the IAA in order to maximise impact. Our panel review all the IAA applications at the quarterly calls and provide invaluable feedback and guidance to our applicants.

Whilst the IAA is a competitive process, it is also a tool for self-development. We work with all applicants to provide support, advice and connections to help enhance applications that are not successful first time round. We usually invite unsuccessful applicants to reapply at future rounds once they have addressed the necessary feedback. Around 45% of successful IAA awards are a result of this resubmission process.

The IAA panel has variety of academic representation across disciplines and career stages. We also have a number of representatives from our key external stakeholders who provide instrumental insight into how the IAA applications can influence and effect change regionally, nationally and internationally.
