Aston University has a particular focus on using its research to tackle real-world problems and to provide practical solutions. That’s why the University believes in investing resources to help researchers realise the full impact potential of their research.

We have four different funds, each designed to help you to generate, enhance and accelerate the impact of your research. We also encourage and support researchers in gathering evidence of their research impact.

Our funds are aimed primarily at supporting research-active staff, including contract staff. However, our UKRI Impact Acceleration Account funds are also used to run impact-related events, which are open to both staff and PhD students.
