Innovate UK (IUK) has launched this competition, to enable research trials and development of innovative vehicles or on-vehicle technology.
These trials will provide real-world emissions reductions for the freight, logistics, utilities and emergency industries. This competition has 2 streams, of which both the projects may focus on industrial research or experimental development.
Projects must be collaborative and a UK business must lead the project. Research organisations can participate in projects as collaborators. To be part of a project, applicants must:
- carry out the project in the UK
- work in collaboration with others (for example, businesses, research organisations and third sector), including at least 1 commercial vehicle operator
The deadline for registrations is noon on 12 October 2016. Full applications are then accepted until 19 October 2016.
