The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has awarded the Leeds Social Sciences Institute (LSSI) funding through an Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) to support Leeds researchers in the social sciences to maximise the impact and influence of their research on non-academic beneficiaries and to foster non-academic stakeholder engagement. The IAA will support a comprehensive portfolio of activities and resources across the social science community which will maximise the potential for impact of social science research and contribute to economic and societal development regionally, nationally, and internationally.
The ESRC award is worth £1.25m in total and runs from 1st April 2023 – 31st March 2028.
The ESRC IAA will allow us to build on the successful ESRC funded IAA that the LSSI has coordinated since 2019.
