Event Details

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Innovate UK recently announced they are to invest in a number of competitions for R&D funding within the Automotive sector. Up to £83m of funding is currently on offer for this sector and this event will give an overview of the 3 competitions.

Up to £24m is on offer to enable industry-led research into vehicle technology that provides significant reductions in real-world emissions. IDP13, as the call is known, is the thirteenth competition in the Integrated Delivery Programme (IDP) series. In addition to this they will invest up to £24m to enable industry-led research trials and development of innovative vehicles or on-vehicle technology, targeting real-world emissions reductions in the freight, through the low emission freight and logistics trial funding competition.

The Centre for Connected & Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) is to invest up to £30m, and Innovate UK up to £5m, in industry-led research and development projects on connected and autonomous vehicles.
