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 follows a 2 stage process:
- Written application;
- Interviews for successful applicants from the first stage.
The project can last between 18 and 42 months.
