EPSRC Place Based Impact Acceleration Account

Innovating Medical Technologies Across the Yorkshire Region

The Place Based Impact Acceleration Account (PBIAA) is an EPSRC scheme providing funding to support a programme of impact activities within a research and innovation cluster. This PBIAA is based on the medical technologies (MedTech) cluster in the Yorkshire region and will support the translation of university research into new clinical products and services. It is one of ten PBIAAs awarded in the first round of the scheme and is led by the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield (‘the consortium’). The funding will support projects that accelerate impact from university research.

The first call is now live and open to applicants from the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield. Future calls will be open nationally. Three types of impact funding are available:

  • Due diligence/Proof of market projects (up to £10k)
  • Proof of feasibility projects (up to £20k)
  • Proof of concept projects (up to £100k)

The application forms for the Impact projects are now available by clicking the Documents link below.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 26th June 2024.
