£60 million boost for science innovation
Date:11/15/2012

th a better understanding of the way companies operate and the challenges they face.

EPSRC chief executive Professor Dave Delpy said: "The research we support is recognised as outstanding on the international stage. These awards aim to make a step change in the impact that has on society: generating new business opportunities which drive economic growth, creating better, more informed, public policy."

They will help companies to engage with research projects at an earlier stage and benefit from research breakthroughs and the fundamental knowledge they generate. The funding will be used to support partnerships with SMEs and larger companies and take some of the risk out of their investment.

Some of the university impact acceleration projects will include:

Entrepreneurs in Residence

Queen's University Belfast: Visiting entrepreneurs can come from diverse fields and will have already successfully delivered societal or economic impact from a research-related knowledge/skills base. Teaming up experienced entrepreneurs with research teams early, will allow researchers to accelerate the time between the discovery of knowledge and identifying a market opportunity.

Supporting London's Tech City

Tech City is the growing technology hub based around Shoreditch in East London, consisting of over 3,200 firms and its on-going development is a national public policy objective. UCL will use its Account to develop a unique service helping innovative digital London SMEs to test their new products and services, gain customer feedback and ensure its technical feasibility, by offering access to UCL as the world's largest "living-lab" for digital and media content.

Public Policy Hub

Engagement between university research and public policy remains a significant challenge for both academics and policymakers, despite the importance of ensuring that the development of public policy is informed by robust evide
