Welcome to our ARC Accelerate 2024 cohort!

There’s a real buzz at ARC today as we bring together this year’s Accelerate cohort for the very first time.

Find out more about the 2024 cohort!

21 talented and ambitious teams are joining us to transform their SHAPE research ideas into sustainable and impactful ventures – for the benefit of society, the economy and, ultimately, to improve the world around us.

ARC Accelerate 2024 Cohort

  • 21 teams from 15 different research organisations
  • 62% of project leads are women
  • 38% from non-Russell Group universities
  • >17 different research disciplines

We cannot wait to start working with such diverse projects ready to deliver impact at scale across a wide range of sectors: from Health and Social Care, International Development and Education to Arts and Creative Industries, Business and Financial Services.

We truly believe ventures can be a critical tool in unlocking the huge potential of SHAPE research. And we’ll be there to support our exceptional researchers and equip them with the skills they need to bring their ideas to market.

We’ll be properly introducing our new cohort soon, but for now, let’s get started!
