Oxfordshire organisations can apply for a UK-wide share of up to £20 million for collaborative projects that significantly reduce emissions and build the UK supply chain.
A £20million funding competition by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) will invest in business projects that support the design, build and manufacture of zero and low emission vehicles and technologies.
This is the latest in a series of funding competitions. They are delivered in partnership by the APC, Innovate UK and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The competitions support the government’s modern Industrial Strategy under the future of mobility Grand Challenge. This challenge will transform how people, goods and services move around, including more efficient transport networks with dramatically reduced carbon emissions and other pollutants.
A 10-year, £1 billion joint government and industry commitment, the APC exists to accelerate low carbon propulsion technologies in the UK. It aims to make the UK a global centre of excellence for next-generation low carbon vehicle development and production.
The competition is inviting projects that enhance UK capabilities in low carbon technologies for automotive and create a long-term supply chain.
Applications open on 7 January and the deadline for responses is 12noon on 6 March.
