Impact Booster Awards

We are offering funding opportunities via Impact Booster Awards to current REPHRAIN projects to support the development of external impact from REPHRAIN research in collaboration with partner organisations. These awards will support knowledge exchange, innovation and impact from REPHRAIN funded research. We encourage proposals that particularly focus on proof-of-concept prototypes or developing evidence through real-world feasibility studies in community, industry or policy settings.

Examples of outcomes from Impact Booster Awards include production of guidance, policy input or commercial output. Proposals with partner organisations from a range of sectors (industry, Third Sector or UK public sector organisations such as the NHS, Borough or City Councils, Schools or Local Education Authorities) are welcomed. International external partners will also be considered.

The Impact Booster Award programme will support successful projects with an indicative maximum funding per award of £30,000 at 100% fEC (of which 80% will be funded by REPHRAIN). This value should be matched equally in cash by the partner organisation. This is an open, rolling call and submissions will be welcome until December 2023. We expect projects to last up to 12 months. All funded projects must be complete, with all deliverables, by 31 May 2024.

Proposals should be costed and approved by the applicant’s organisation before submission.
