Up to £35 million in collaborative research and development funding is available in the latest round of Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) competition funding. This is delivered in partnership with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Innovate UK.
The competition’s aim is to take demonstrated on-vehicle technologies towards commercialisation in either on or off road vehicles. Grant funded projects must:
- develop technologies that will lead to significant reductions in vehicle CO2 or other emissions
- align with Automotive Council Technology Group Roadmaps
- develop the UK’s supply chain capability in low carbon vehicle propulsion or light weight systems technology
We expect projects to range in size from total costs of £5 million to £40 million and should last between 18 and 42 months. Projects must be collaborative, and must include at least 1 vehicle manufacturer and/or a tier 1 supplier as part of your consortium, and at least 1 small to medium enterprise (SME) partner.
The competition opens on 12 January 2017
You must register before midday 29 March 2017
