£9 million funding available to improve transport systems

Opportunities for businesses and local authorities to work together to develop integrated transport systems.

Transport networks are reaching saturation across the UK.

Transport networks are becoming congested and over-crowded across the UK, causing problems for commuters and businesses.

If you work in transport or a related sector, your business could win grant funding to develop new or improved products, processes or services that integrate existing transport networks and infrastructures.

Innovate UK is investing up to £9 million in a competition to find collaborative R&D projects that will deliver accessible, cost-effective and easy-to-use services for transport users.

This is a two-stage competition that opens on 12 January 2015.

We expect projects to last up to 2 years and for total costs to range between £2 million and £4 million per project.

A briefing event for potential applicants will be held in London on 20 January 2015.
