CCAV Research and Development Competition Briefing & SMMT CAV Forum

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 previewed by Innovate UK in its 2016/2017 Delivery Plan, the second £35m Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Research & Development (CAV2) competition, being funded from Government's £100m Intelligent Mobility Fund, opened on 22nd August 2016.

This briefing and networking 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.

Registration: Places at this event are limited so please register your interest in attending as early as possible. All expressions of interest will be reviewed and you will be notified if you have been allocated a place 2 weeks before the event. 

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.
