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.
