APC 12: advancing the UK’s low carbon automotive capability
The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) invests up to £30 million, 3 times a year, in collaborative research and development (R&D) projects. These are pre-production projects and must be match funded. In this round APC is investing £20 million.
APC 12 is looking for projects that support the UK’s long-term capabilities and associated supply chain in the design, build and manufacture of zero tailpipe emission vehicles.
We also welcome projects which demonstrate a significant change in the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, compared to best in class. This can include technologies such as motors, batteries, power electronics, hybridisation and alternative propulsion systems.
Projects must support the growth of these technologies, creating more jobs and capability throughout the UK supply chain.
Your project must concentrate on the automotive market as its primary application.
This competition follows a 2 stage process:
- Written application.
- Interviews for successful applicants from the first stage.
Your project’s total eligible costs must be 50% match funded and between £5 million and £40 million. Projects can last between 18 and 42 months.
