Integrated Delivery Platform 5 (IDP15)

Competition will open in September
15 October | Workshop, London

UK government funding supporting a sustainable automotive sector opens for applications in September. UK businesses can apply for a share of the available funding to develop zero emission vehicle technologies, including off-highway vehicles.

Workshops are being held in September to provide more information on the call. In addition, in recognition of the special use case for specialist and large vehicles, a dedicated workshop is being run on 15 October in London. The event will cover emergency vehicles, off-highway vehicles, large city vehicles and the supply chain which supports them. With these vehicles come a unique set of operating challenges and requirements and a collaborative approach is vital. The workshop, run by Innovate UK and KTN, will explore the challenges, join up complementary organisations and form project ideas. Book the workshop here.
