Advancing the UK’s low carbon automotive capability – Funding Opportunity

Advanced Propulsion Centre

The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) invests up to £30 million, 3 times a year, in collaborative research and development (R&D) projects. These are pre-production projects and must be match funded. In this round APC is investing £20 million.

APC 11 is seeking proposals for UK based R&D projects that significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions and improve air quality.

For this competition, APC is particularly looking for projects that support the UK’s long-term capabilities and supply chain in the design, build and manufacture of zero-emission vehicles. This can include technologies such as motors, batteries, power electronics, hybridisation and alternative propulsion systems. These projects must help make those capabilities a permanent part of the UK supply chain.

The project’s primary application must be for the automotive industry.

This competition has been open as of 6 August 2018 and will close on 3 October 2018. For more information and to apply for a grant, please visit this website.
