Laura is responsible for managing and growing the University of Exeter's portfolio of projects financed by the ESRC and EPSRC Impact Accelerator Accounts (IAA) , the Medical Research Council (MRC) Confidence in Concept Fund and the Research England Strategic Priority Fund.
The ESRC and EPSRC IAA funding enables University of Exeter academics to build new and to strengthen existing relationships with non-academic partners. Through supporting a range of impact activities, IAAs maximise the economic and social impacts that arise from research.
The MRC Confidence in Concept fund promotes innovation and collaboration in the development of translational medical research, and the delivery of novel therapies, diagnostics and medical devices, with industrial partners.
Research England's Strategic Priority (SPF) fund enables research activity that supports evidence-based policy making. Projects strengthen University of Exeter's capability to drive research activity in partnership with policymakers, ensures that the University is positioned to lead on and evaluate regional and local evidenced-based policy initiatives and creates evidenced-based policy career pathways for Early Career Researchers.
