Developing low carbon automotive capability: apply for funding
UK businesses can apply for a share of up to £20 million for UK-developed late stage R&D in advanced low carbon propulsion capability in the automotive sector.
This Advanced Propulsion Centre and Innovate UK competition is looking for projects that demonstrate the development of on-vehicle technologies for on or off-road vehicles.
Projects must either accelerate the development of low and zero tailpipe emission capable technologies, or demonstrate a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions leading to air quality improvements.
Proposals should align with the UK’s Industrial Strategy and must demonstrate how high value R&D will take place in the UK as a result of this funding.
The Advanced Propulsion Centre is particularly looking for projects that support the UK’s long-term supply chain, associated capabilities and growth aspirations.
If your application can demonstrate a positive impact on the UK economy it will take priority.
Your project must concentrate on the automotive market as its primary application.
- the project must be led by a UK business
- it must be based in the UK
- it must involve at least one micro, small or medium-sized enterprise (SME)
- it must include a vehicle manufacturer or tier 1 supplier
- total eligible costs must be 50% match funded and between £5-40 million
The competition is open for applications and the deadline is midday on 16 October 2019.
