The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) provides funding, support and insight for the development of low carbon and net zero automotive technologies. It aims to support the UK’s transition towards net zero product manufacturing and supply chain in the UK automotive sector. In this competition round APC is investing up to £25 million. They are looking for collaborative, pre-production research and development (R&D) projects that:
- Support the UK’s long-term capabilities by securing long term R&D investment
- Achieve through the associated supply chain, the design, build and manufacture of zero carbon tailpipe emission vehicles
Projects must look to fulfil both these criteria to ensure the UK meets the future demand of vehicle-makers. In applying to this competition, you are entering into a competitive process. This competition closes 2 March . If you’re intending to submit an application to the next Advanced Propulsion Centre fund round (APC20), which opens soon, APC is hosting an applicant briefing webinar on 12 January which will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the application process and a step-by-step guide to completing the application form.
