As previewed by Innovate UK in its 2016/2017 Delivery Plan, a second Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (C-CAV) competition is scheduled for later this year.
The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) – a joint policy unit of the Department for Transport, and the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) – is working with Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network to develop the scope of this competition, that is being funded from the BIS £100 million intelligent mobility fund.
The Knowledge Transfer Network working with Transport for Greater Manchester, TechNorth, Northern Robotics Network and the Northern Automotive Alliance are pleased to announce a Network and consortia building event at MediaCity Manchester on the 20th July.
The aim of this event is to help organisations interested in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles start to make new connections and network in preparation for the call in Q3; with a particular focus on how to foster collaboration with UK’s Digital and SME sector.
The event will start at 11:00 and finish at 16:00 with lunch provided.
