Employer ownership funding: automotive supply chain guidance

Guidance on how to apply for employer ownership funding under the automotive supply chain project.

Detail

This funding call is open from 3 November 2014 to 6 February 2015. If you wish to apply you will need to register on the BIS e-Tendering Portal first. Once you have registered, and if you are eligible, you must then complete an application form. Read the attached guidance document before registering.

We invite auto supply chain companies to submit proposals to support their training projects. Projects must improve the company’s ability to meet its own growth plans and contribute to the success of the vehicle manufacturers it supplies to.

This funding call builds on an earlier investment opportunity for auto supply chain companies. This ran from 6 May 2014 to 25 July 2014. There are 2 main enhancements to the new offer. We have lowered the minimum grant value to £40,000. And as a result of changes to State Aid regulations, we’ve included trainees’ wages as eligible costs.
