Business Boost Fund

The Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York were each awarded a top-up fund for their ESRC Impact Accelerator Account, entitled ‘Business Boost Fund’, which was to support new and existing partnerships between social scientists and private industry and businesses.

The aim of the funding was to align social science research with Industrial Strategy priorities, supporting a step change in our working with business partners, facilitating productive collaborations across the WRDTP network. Funding was made available across the three institutions to support workshops, meetings, seminars, training and larger scale events that brought together academics and industry representatives.
