Disruptive technologies in low carbon vehicles II - proof of concept compet

Disruptive technologies in low carbon vehicles II - proof of concept competition briefing

The Technology Strategy Board, in partnership with the Office for Low Emission Vehicles, is to invest £10m to support the further development of innovative technologies with the potential to transform the automotive industry and significantly cut CO2 from road transport

We are seeking highly innovative, vehicle-centric, business-led, proof-of-concept projects to become part of our Low Carbon Vehicles Innovation Platform Integrated Delivery Programme. We are targeting disruptive technology and research that challenge current conventions from a position of intellectual strength and will look to support projects that explore new boundaries or adapt existing novel technologies for deployment into new fields.

Projects must be collaborative and business-led. This competition is primarily aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) but does not exclude larger organisations bringing forward game-changing ideas. Companies working outside the automotive sector that can bring technical expertise and knowledge to a consortium are particularly welcome. We expect total project costs to be up to £1.5m. Projects are expected to last between 12 and 24 months.

This two-stage competition opens on 14 January 2013. The deadline for registration is at noon on 13 February 2013 and the deadline for expressions of interest is at noon on 20 February 2013. The second stage for invited applications opens on 18 March 2013 and the deadline for invited applications is at noon on 8 May 2013.

A briefing event will be held on 22 January 2013, and a networking event to facilitate consortia-building for this competition will be held on 27 November 2012.
