Welcome to the
Impact Accelerator Unit
The Impact Accelerator Unit (IAU) has the leading role in closing the evidence-to-practice gap, by accelerating both the uptake and impact of research evidence. By working with stakeholders to create innovations which arise from research, and offering solutions to our partners' problems, we are able to ensure that there is a positive and sustained impact on public health, and health and social care - maximising the benefits of world-leading health and social care research to improve the quality of life for patients and the public.
The IAU has launched a new guide for how to stay active and keep well during lockdown, aimed at people over 70 who are suffering with joint pain and other long term health conditions.
