There has been an overwhelming level of interest in this event and as such we are unable to offer any further places. If you would like to receive the post-event materials from this event, please contact email@example.com. The afternoon session will be webcast so if you would like to join this, please register here.
You may also be interested to know that there will be a central Government stand at LCV16 where Innovate UK and CCAV will be present. They would be happy to talk through the scope there and on day 2 Innovate UK has some time on the main stage to talk about this and the two low emission competitions as well.
Finally, we are looking at holding a smaller event for a number of competitions including this one on the 27th September in Sunderland. If this is of interest, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2015 the Government announced a £100m Intelligent Mobility Fund for collaborative research and development into connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) technologies to be administered by the newly formed Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV). In 2015/2016, £20m was invested from that fund into 21 R&D projects and feasibility studies following proposals made into the first Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Research & Development (CAV1) Competition, designed to stimulate developments in autonomous vehicles and connected transport systems. Separately, £10m is being invested by Innovate UK to improve efficiency and customer experience through the Enhancing the ‘End to End Journey’ competition.
As announced on 12th August, the second £30m Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Research & Development (CAV2) competition, being funded from Government's £100m Intelligent Mobility Fund, will open 22nd August 2016. Funding for this competition comes from CCAV (up to £30m) and Innovate UK (£5m).

This event will be an opportunity to hear about the scope of the second competition in more detail and the process for applying as well as an opportunity to meet with Innovate UK for 1:1 discussions about the competition. The event will also feature case studies from the first competition, short pitches from companies promoting their services/expertise and it will provide an opportunity to network and develop partnerships for the competition.
SMMT CAV Forum
On this occasion, SMMT is joining forces with C-CAV and Innovate UK to hold the quarterly SMMT Connected & Autonomous Vehicles Forum in conjunction with this briefing event. The SMMT CAV Forum is a cross-industry, multi-stakeholder forum involving automotive, a number of key adjacent industries, universities and the Government. It provides an opportunity for diverse stakeholders to share insights on emerging issues and find solutions to some of the more intractable ones in the development, testing and deployment of CAV technology and related services, including those in adjacent sectors.
SMMT CAV Forum participation is normally by invitation only, but on this special occasion participants of this briefing event who are not Forum members are also welcome to express interest in attending.
