Innovate UK to invest up to £3m in collaborative R&D projects that will enable significant reductions in off-highway vehicle emissions and/or deliver major improvements in their operational efficiency
Innovate UK is to invest up to £3m in collaborative R&D projects that will enable significant reductions in off-highway vehicle emissions and/or deliver major improvements in their operational efficiency.
The aim is to further strengthen the UK’s reputation for excellence in the development of world-leading technologies for wheeled or tracked vehicles used in agriculture, construction, mining and other off-highway roles.
Each project needs to show how these technologies – deployed on-vehicle or off-vehicle – will accelerate the development of ideas far more rapidly than the normal rate of industrial development progress. We therefore expect applicants to bring products to market quickly and to demonstrate an ability to build significant supply chain capability within the UK.
This competition opened for applicants on 29 September 2014. The deadline for registration is at noon on 5 November 2014 and the deadline for applications is at noon on 12 November 2014.
