EPSRC Impact Festival 2022 Free

The Impact Festival is an annual event organised by EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) holders in Scotland, who are committed to delivering jointly funded initiatives, particularly in the areas of networking, training, culture change and dual funding of IAA projects where active collaborations between institutions exist.

Primarily aimed at staff from the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, St Andrews and Strathclyde, the festival is an opportunity to connect with fellow researchers and discuss a range of impact-related topics.

Plenary sessions feature Andrew Bissell, CEO from Sunamp, who will speak about the history and long-term partnership between Sunamp and the University of Edinburgh and Olga Kozlova, Director of Innovation and Industry Engagement at the University of Strathclyde, who will discuss the importance of entrepreneurial mindset in modern academia.

This year, alongside the plenary sessions, the festival is offering a wide variety of workshops in the following areas: RI, E&DI and Sustainability; Routes to Impact; and Researcher Development.

Visit the Impact Festival website for more information and the full programme.

The festival is taking place at The Studio in Glasgow. The Impact Team is providing free coach transport from St Andrews. If anyone would like a place, please contact the Impact Team on [email protected].
