A new call for applications for Carbon Trust applied research funding

On Monday 14 December 2009 the Carbon Trust is opening the next Applied Research call.

The Carbon Trust has doubled the size of grants available under its flagship Applied Research Scheme from £250k to £500k. This announcement should provide a boost to low carbon entrepreneurs and academics seeking to develop carbon saving technologies.

The decision to increase the maximum grant size follows a market assessment of the funding landscape which found that £500k grants would enable the development of more ambitious projects with potential for even greater carbon savings.

Applied Research Grant funding is available to businesses, research institutions and other organisations and aims to support the development and commercialisation of technologies which have the potential to reduce UK carbon emissions. As such the Trust is endeavoring to encourage and support the progress of low carbon technologies towards large-scale deployment.
