Niche Vehicle Competition Opens
The Niche Vehicle Network is continuing to invest in R&D projects focussed on the niche and specialist vehicle manufacturing sector.
Our 2015-16 competition, supported by Innovate UK and OLEV, is providing up to £1,000,000 of grant funding to support the development and demonstration of innovative niche vehicle technologies, primarily applicable to non-human powered, road-going niche vehicles, within the following categories:
- Improved Fuel Efficiency & Carbon Reduction
- Weight Reduction & Recyclability
All projects should aim to support the growth and competitiveness of the independent niche vehicle manufacturing sector and will demonstrate the developed technology on a UK niche vehicle.
