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

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 match-funded projects. In this round APC is investing £30 million.

Your project must concentrate on the automotive market as its primary application.

APC 15 is looking for:

  • projects that support the UK’s long-term capabilities through securing long-term R&D investment
  • projects that can be achieved through its associated supply chain in the design, build and manufacture of zero tailpipe emission vehicles

Your project will preferably deliver both, to ensure the UK meets the future demand of vehicle-makers.

We welcome projects which demonstrate a significant change in the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and improvements in air quality compared to best in class. This can include technologies such as motors, batteries, power electronics, hybridisation and alternative propulsion systems.

This competition follows a 2-stage process:

  1. Online application.
  2. Interviews for successful applicants from the first stage.

The competition closes at midday 12pm UK time Wednesday 4 March 2020
