The SHAPE Catalyst will run from 2023 to 2026. Working in partnership with the ARC Accelerator, we will be looking for individuals or teams with innovative, ambitious ideas from arts, humanities and social sciences disciplines that can sustain economic or non-economic impact through the commercialisation of research.
The ESRC and AHRC SHAPE Catalyst is delivered in partnership with the ARC Accelerator, run by Aspect. ARC will use their four-stage programme, the ARC Pathway, to guide arts, humanities and social scientists on the SHAPE commercialisation journey.
You will receive £62,000 at 80% full economic cost (£50,000 from UK Research and Innovation) and a unique package of expert-led training and dedicated mentors to help you build ventures from your research and deliver impact at scale.
