Funding competition: innovation in cycling and walking

The Department for Transport (DfT) will fund up to £470,000 for innovative projects that lead to more walking and cycling.

Proposals will tackle current barriers and encourage more journey stages to be made by bicycle or on foot. Innovations may include, for example, technology, infrastructure, manufacturing or behavioural change.

The competition is open to individuals, groups and organisations. It is particularly suitable for early-stage, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Industry partners such as local government, independent and third sectors can carry out the project on their own or with others.

This competition has 2 phases. Up to £170,000 is allocated for phase 1 and up to £300,000 for phase 2:

  • Phase 1: proof of concept. Projects should last up to 15 weeks and range in size up to a total cost of £25,000 each.

  • Phase 2: demonstrator projects. Projects should last up to 9 months. They can range in size up to a total cost of £100,000 per project.
