Social Science Impact Accelerator

Social Science Impact Accelerator

We offer funding, training and support for academics and partner organisations to maximise the real-world impact of our social science research.

The Social Science Impact Accelerator’s mission is to unlock the benefits of world-leading social science expertise for communities and organisations in our region, the UK and the world.

We do this through:

  • Funding projects that amplify the positive impact of our research and expertise
  • Residencies, both outward (researchers spending time at a partner organisation) and inward (partner staff spending time at Royal Holloway)
  • Training and networking opportunities
  • Public engagement bursaries for Early Career Researchers and PhD students to grow their engagement and knowledge exchange experience
  • PhD placements
  • Impact-focused PhD studentships
