Projects must be collaborative and business-led and include a vehicle manufacturer or a tier 1 supplier and an SME partner.
Overall, each project should aim to attract no more than 50% public funding of the total eligible project costs.
We expect to fund mainly industrial research, in which a business partner will generally attract up to 50% public funding for their project costs (60% for SMEs), or experimental development, with a business partner attracting 25% funding (35% for a SME).
We expect total eligible project costs to be between £5m and £40m.
Projects are expected to last between 18 and 42 months.
